FCGI::Async - use FastCGI with IO::Async


 use FCGI::Async;
 use IO::Async::Loop;

 my $loop = IO::Async::Loop->new();

 my $fcgi = FCGI::Async->new(
    loop => $loop
    service => 1234,

    on_request => sub {
       my ( $fcgi, $req ) = @_;

       # Handle the request here



This subclass of Net::Async::FastCGI provides a slightly different API; where it can take an argument containing the IO::Async::Loop object, rather than be added as Notifier object within one. It is provided mostly as a backward-compatibility wrapper for older code using this interface; newer code ought to use the Net::Async::FastCGI interface directly.


$fcgi = FCGI::Async->new( %args )

Returns a new instance of a FCGI::Async object.

If either a handle or service argument are passed to the constructor, then the newly-created object is added to the given IO::Async::Loop, then the listen method is invoked, passing the entire %args hash to it.

If either of the above arguments are given, then a IO::Async::Loop must also be provided:

loop => IO::Async::Loop

A reference to the IO::Async::Loop which will contain the listening sockets.
