This basically involves recompiling them with fcgi_stdio.h and libfcgi.a. No real problem - takes me maybe two minutes these days! As for performance: using Openmarket Webserver, perl 5.003, latest Oraperl running on Sun 20s using Solaris, average time for a FCGI program to execute a trivial SQL query and display the results: 0.13s. Average time to just run a trivial FCGI program (without getting anything from Oracle): 0.07s. Later, Rujith.
