Ask HN: What is a good replacement for CGI.pm?
5 points by oblib 44 days ago | hide | past | favorite | 5 comments
I still use cgi.pm for doing server side stuff like processing forms and AJAX calls because I've been lazy I suppose, but it's still really handy for me and I'm not aware of anything else quite like it for .cgi scripts.

I'd like to stick with perl but I'll appreciate and look into any suggestions offered.

I haven't found one, except I use PHP shims for connecting with Perl as an alternative to CGI for users who can't configure their web server, but can still run PHP.

cgi-lib.pl from Matt's Script Archive!!!

(I can't believe I even remember that existed 25+ years ago...)

I still have the book for that, and CGI.pm

Have you tried Dancer? I’m a fan

No, I've heard of but it's been few years since I looked into it. Thank you for the suggestion. I'll go check it out.
