Subject: please make FCGI an optional dependency
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 497b
Core perl ships CGI.pm but not FCGI. Everything works fine. Users cannot upgrade CGI later, though, because FCGI will be required, even for the same version. This makes it difficult to consider dropping CGI.pm from the core perl distribution, because it becomes much more difficult to install CGI outside core. Clearly CGI.pm can operate without FCGI. Please make FCGI a recommendation or option, rather than a hard requirement when installed from the CPAN distribution. Thank you. -- rjbs

RJBS, I like this idea. Moving FCGI to recommended status seems easy and harmless enough. Thanks for your help maintaining Perl! Mark

I have just uploaded developer releases of CGI.pm and a new distribution CGI-Fast (there are still some module owner/co-main permission that need adding/transferring to me): https://metacpan.org/release/LEEJO/CGI.pm-3.65_02 https://metacpan.org/release/LEEJO/CGI-Fast-1.10_02 This splits out CGI::Fast from CGI.pm, thus removing the hard dependency and making life a little bit easier for those needing to install CGI.pm with no access to a compiler. With this i believe there are no other blockers for removing CGI.pm from core. Thanks, Lee.

CGI.pm v4.00 has been released to CPAN, CGI::Fast has been split out of the dist into its own as v2.00. Resolving. Thanks! Lee.
