I’m kind of perplexed here so I’ll ask the stupid questions.
When I use perl and call for a CGI module, I get with it all kinds of
cool abilities related to %ENV and STDIN/STDOUT and the ability to even
I can’t find much of anything about what FCGI/FastCGI offers in terms of
or properties that are similar…
Is it correct to assume that FCGI doesn’t do any of this and if I’m
in any kind of CGI related functionality (headers, cookies, %ENV…)
should probably just load the CGI modules?
Now onto the Ruby specific nature of the question, but if anyone here
perl-specific question above I would also appreciate it:
Is there some way I can run the ruby fcgi scripts from command line to
Editing and restarting apache all the time is not very fun.
Under ruby should I load fcgi, cgi, cgi/cookie, cgi/session rather
than expecting any of this kind of insight into the HTTP process from
working environment? (please don’t take any of these negative questions
to be a
slight on FCGI/FastCGI
It’s a stupid question but I would feel stupider if I found I was
multiple modules when only one was required. I haven’t really found
that tells me that fcgi does other than some rudimentary examples. (or
that simple and I’m just trying to make it complicated?)
Simply put, I can’t seem to find any way to discover what fcgi provides
ruby (variables, methods). But I would like to use it and understand
that many do.
The documentation around the whole FastCGI thing is either very slim or
find. I did not find the whitepaper a very encouraging read since I’m
designing an HTTP server. I’m trying to be a user of the product.
