Subject Re: How best to get my mod_perl programs to run under CGI for non-mod_perl users?
Date Mon, 17 Dec 2012 16:38:04 GMT
 Hi Chris,

One approach would be to modify your applications so they use some kind of
abstraction layer, like Plack, that runs on top of both CGI and mod_perl.
 There's more on Plack here:

Another option, since you used Registry, would be to change your use of
Apache::Request to something like which works on both.  You may not
need to change much else.
