Apache, mod_perl and Embperl

Malcolm Beattie
OxLUG, 3 October 1999


This is the talk I gave to OxLUG, the Oxfordshire Linux Users Group on 3 October 1999. Here are the bullet points of the talk itself.


Two Embperl examples accompany the talk. One is a very basic host lookup form which invokes a single file of Embperl source. The other is a little auction demo system which has a front-end page whose forms call various different Embperl pages. The source for these Embperl pages are enter, bid, search, and reconcile. All the sources above have been given extensions of .txt so that they appear as source in the browser. For the actual demo, the files extensions are actually .epl and Apache is configured to send such files through the Embperl handler.
