Frankly, you are better off with Plack and PSGI (a.k.a. Dancer, 
Dancer2, twiggy, etc) than trying to embed anything into apache
with mod_perl. There are modules for converting mod_perl request
objects into plack, which simplifies all of your code and makes
debugging it a whole lot easier (since you can use perl -d 
rather than dealing with mock apache objects). 

If you have to run code w/in apache then try the PSGI interface:


You can test the code with perl -d and run it in anything from 
twiggy to starman to apache when you are done.
