Description Chris Weyl 2007-04-09 23:59:10 UTC

CGI::Ex provides a suite of utilities to make writing CGI scripts more
enjoyable. Although they can all be used separately, the main functionality
of each of the modules is best represented in the CGI::Ex::App module.
CGI::Ex::App takes CGI application building to the next step. CGI::Ex::App
is not quite a framework (which normally includes pre-built html) instead
CGI::Ex::App is an extended application flow that dramatically reduces CGI
build time in most cases. It does so using as little magic as possible. See
