"ActiveState, the leader in open source programming, announces the release of PerlEx 2.0 . A plug-in for NT Webservers, PerlEx 2.0 enables programmers to easily create and deploy Web services. PerlEx allows Perl to function more efficiently on a Windows based web server by lowering web page delivery times and decreasing CPU load."

"The impact of Web services is similar to that of Perl CGI scripting in the early days of the Internet," stated Dick Hardt, Founder & CEO, ActiveState. "PerlEx will be helpful even to programmers with only minimal knowledge of the new Web services standards. They can create and deploy new services by simply writing the Perl code that embodies that service and then deploying it to PerlEx, which generates WSDL on-the-fly for them."
