Disclaimer: This book was published about seven years ago and
details technologies that, while cutting-edge in their day, have become
partially outdated now.
If you are looking for the most recent technology
documentation, try reading Instant CGI/Perl.
That said, there is a lot of interesting and useful information
contained here that might be fascinating from a
historical perspective or from a general software
engineering perspective. So if you keep this in mind and are
still interested in the content, feel free to read further.
