Subject Re: Apache::ASP Mod_perl
Date Sun, 19 Jul 2015 07:18:26 GMT
I have created a branch of apache::asp to work on Plack/PSGI
It worked nicely and is in repository .
I just didn't have a time to document it but i will be back to it once i do.
And i an actually looking for testers .

And ASP have it pluses ,like page based navigation (and not MVC) if that's
what you want.

Anyway it seems like Cris is trying to run VB using this module and it will
not work,

this is a module for running perl in ASP like fashion .VB will not work
