Synopsis: Question - CGI in memory

State-Changed-From-To: open-closed
State-Changed-By: dgaudet
State-Changed-When: Sun Jul 20 15:31:47 PDT 1997
State-Changed-Why:
If they are claiming that ISAPI is faster than CGI they are right,
but apache already supports the Apache API which is equivalent
to ISAPI.

If they are claiming that loading DLLs with some proprietary linkage
is "CGI" ... then they're missing out on the "Common" part of
the "Common Gateway Interface".  This isn't CGI, it may be similar
but unfortunately isn't CGI.  CGI itself is slow, and it's easy to
do better.

For examples of systems which do work with Apache and provide
"CGI-like" functionality with better performance visit
http://www.apache.org/related_projects.html (look at mod_php
and mod_perl), and http://www.fastcgi.com/.
