CGI::Simple provides a relatively lightweight drop in replacement for
It shares an identical OO interface to for parameter parsing, file
upload, cookie handling and header generation. This module is entirely object
oriented, however a complete functional interface is available by using the
CGI::Simple::Standard module.
Essentially everything in that relates to the CGI (not HTML) side of
things is available. There are even a few new methods and additions to old
ones! If you are interested in what has gone on under the hood see the
"Compatibility with" section in CGI::Simple(3pm).
In practical testing this module loads and runs about twice as fast as
depending on the precise task.
