CGI::Apache - Make things work with against Perl-Apache API


 require CGI::Apache;

 my $q = new Apache::CGI;


 #do things just like you do with


When using the Perl-Apache API, your applications are faster, but the enviroment is different than CGI. This module attempts to set-up that environment as best it can.


This module used to be named Apache::CGI. Sorry for the confusion.


If you're going to inherit from this class, make sure to ``use'' it after your package declaration rather than ``require'' it. This is because does a little magic during the import() step in order to make autoloading work correctly.

We are painfully aware that these documents may contain incorrect links and misformatted HTML. Such bugs lie in the automatic translation process that automatically created the hundreds and hundreds of separate documents that you find here. Please do not report link or formatting bugs, because we cannot fix per-document problems. The only bug reports that will help us are those that supply working patches to the installhtml or pod2html programs, or to the Pod::HTML module itself, for which I and the entire Perl community will shower you with thanks and praises.

If rather than formatting bugs, you encounter substantive content errors in these documents, such as mistakes in the explanations or code, please use the perlbug utility included with the Perl distribution.
