Subject Re: CGI module deprecation
Date Thu, 30 Nov 2017 00:40:17 GMT
I've just put a system together with CGI::Simple and everything seemed
to behave properly. I seem to recall other compatible things out
there as well when I was looking around. CGI::Simple seems to be working
well enough that at some point I might go back and tweak some old stuff
that uses CGI. I haven't verified the speed or size claims but it's
working well on an old Raspberry-Pi (very low volumes) so can't be too bad.

It claims to be 100% compatible on the parsing side with all the html
stuff removed. I haven't pushed very hard to verify this.
