Sorry. It just looked like nothing was happening with these various
tools. For example: The SpeedyCGI/PersistentPerl web site has binaries
for download which are ancient. The fastcgi site's FAQ has a "what is
fastcgi?" placeholder that hasn't been completed. Things like that
give the impression there isn't much user base. For example, if
someone heard of fastcgi how would they find the FCGI module? For the
life of me, I can't figure out how to find it on CPAN without already
knowing where it is. :) Taken as a sum I gather impressions. That's

I've not had any problems with Ubuntu. But, I just use the server
distribution. I should probably use CentOS as a more serious server
distro. But, I like how Ubuntu has broad (fanatical?) user support. I
notice the speedyCGI package is in the Debian repository too. That
might be where Ubuntu got it. (wink).
I didn't realize you only tested fastcgi (not an active user).
SpeedyCGI and "pperl" on CPAN) (if they work) seem to be more
transparent. They don't require a lot of change to the script (just
the shebang line). They have options to automatically terminate after
a number of executions, or amount of time. I've have code these tests
into my fastcgi "accept" loop (which is already a significant
modification to non-fastcgi processing.).
