NAME

Net::FastCGI - FastCGI Toolkit

DESCRIPTION

This distribution aims to provide a complete API for working with the FastCGI protocol.

The primary goal is to provide a function oriented and object oriented API which are not tied to a specific I/O model or framework.

Secondary goal is to provide higher level tools/API which can be used for debugging and interoperability testing.

PROGRESS

The function oriented API is considered feature complete. Net::FastCGI::Protocol provides functions to build and parse all FastCGI v1.0 messages, also provided is a few convenient higher level functions such as build_begin_request(), build_end_request(), parse_record() and dump_record().

Work has begun on object oriented implementation and a simple blocking I/O class which is intended for testing and debugging.
