CGIAlt 1.0.0 released - re-implementation of cgi.rb


#1

I have released CGIAlt 1.0.0.
http://cgialt.rubyforge.org/
http://rubyforge.org/projects/cgialt/

CGIAlt is a re-implementation of ‘cgi.rb’.

Features

  • Compatible with ‘cgi.rb’ and CGI class
  • Faster than ‘cgi.rb’
  • Available with CGIExt (which is an implementation of cgi.rb in C
    extension)
  • FastCGI support
  • Ruby 1.9 support

Install

$ tar xzf cgialt-1.0.0.tar.gz
$ cd cgialt-1.0.0
$ sudo ruby setup.rb

or

$ sudo gem install cgialt

Usage

If you want to use CGIAlt instead of ‘cgi.rb’:

require ‘cgialt’

If you want to load ‘cgi.rb’ when CGIAlt is not installed:

begin
require ‘cgialt’
rescue LoadError
require ‘cgi’
end

If you want replace ‘cgi.rb’ with CGIAlt, create new ‘cgi.rb’:

$ cd /usr/local/lib/ruby1.8/site_ruby
$ sudo echo “require ‘cgialt’” > cgi.rb

Enhancements from 0.0.2

  • Ruby 1.9 support
  • Add tests for ‘cgialt/util.rb’.

Changges from 0.0.2

  • CGI class now uses CGI#env_table() instead of using $CGI_ENV
    directly.
  • CGI class now uses CGI#stdinput() and CGI#stdoutput() instead of
    using $stdin and $stdout directly.
  • Refactor ‘cgialt/fcgi/core.rb’.

Bugfixes from 0.0.2

  • CGI.parse() supports to parse ‘a=10&b’ (no ‘=’).
  • CGI.parse() returned NoMethodError when QUERY_STRING was “&=10”. Now
    fixed.
  • CGI.unescapeHTML() couldn’t convert " ". Now fixed.
  • Typo fixed in CGI::Cookie.parse().
  • Move RFC822_DAYS and RFC822_MONTHS from ‘cgi/core.rb’ to ‘cgi/
    util.rb’.
