Subject ASP via CGI?
Date Thu, 14 Feb 2002 14:12:40 GMT
First I have to apologize for a maybe stupid question, but I'm a total 
newbie to Apache::ASP.
I just stumpled over it yesterday evening and it sounds like what I've 
ever been looking for: a combination of ASP and Perl!! So far I always 
had to do everthing the CGI-way.
But I've the problem that my ISP does not provide mod_perl ...(my site 
is running on a virtual host and the provider says mod_perl is not 
secure for such a server...) until I upgrade to a dedicated server 
(which I can't afford at the moment).
So my idea was to write a small wrap-around CGI-Script which calls 
Apache::ASP as a standalone program and to call my ASP-Pages via this 
script. (Ok, presumbably I loose much of the advantages of Apache::ASP 
this way, but at least I get some of them)
What do you think of this idea? Is this possible with Apache::ASP? And 
if, has anybody else already written such a script?

PS: As it is a rather small website with not so much traffic, the slower 
execution of a CGI-Script (compared to mod_perl) should not be a problem.
