    Command-line Interfaces using Modern Perl

    If you Perl or you're Perl-curious, or you build command-line interfaces, you should read this, but before we dive in building the command-line application, lets first talk about the command line.

    Command-line programs have been with us s…

    Mojolicious is a full-stack web framework and damn fast as a cgi-script. Running web apps as CGI has other issues as well, like making sure that permissions are set properly so you dont end up allowing joe douchebag to download...

    I’ve used Catalyst, Dancer and Mojolicious. I’ve use Catalyst, Dancer and Mojolicious. There are no silver bullets, one-size does not fit all, variety is good, TIMTOWTDI, etc, etc. I concur, as previously mentioned by someone else, that Mojo/Mojolicious doesn’t appear...

    Can you provide some numbers or benchmarks?

    I tried the Mojo hello world described in its Synopsis:

    use Mojo::Base 'Mojo';

    # single method call!
    sub handler {
    my ($self, $tx) = @_;

    # Request
    my $method = $tx->req->method;
    my $path = $tx->req->url->path;

    Simple, quick to install, but moderately well featured pastebin application:

    Sorry for my bad english, Perl Hackers, I has (near) 6 months with Perl, I has come from PHP, Python and Ruby languages, so, Perl is Uglyness than all? No, may be, or not, (Uglyness for me is bad structured and modularized code) but Perl is so far the most flexible language that I learn. I still study Software Engineering course based (with small things about Computer Science) here in the Brazil. My Intro to Development Web teacher was working with Perl in the 90’s years, but now he is work with C# (He was work with too, before, Assembly, Fortran, Cobol, C, etc…, good people).…
