"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
"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."
