"mod_perl uses the Apache API to embed a complete Perl
interpreter into your web server. This not only speeds up your CGI
programs, it makes almost all of the Apache API available to the
Perl programmer. Red Hat has a mod_perl RPM you can easily install.
Configuring it is trickier."
"Here is what you do to configure Apache to use mod_perl for CGI
"The mod_perl RPM is compiled as a Dynamic Shared Object (DSO).
Before DSOs came along you had to recompile the server every time
you wanted to take advantage of a new module. But with DSOs, Apache
can load new modules dynamically. Red Hat has compiled Apache to
use a DSO. The mod_perl module has been compiled as a DSO. All you
need do to get Apache to load the module is edit your httpd.conf
file to tell Apache to load it."
