I'm looking into seeing how I can speed up my Rex tasks. Rex has a lot of startup overhead. Even out of the box, a very simple task that just prints "hi" to the command line can take 1/2 second locally. A Rexfile with lots of tasks and modules and submodule is taking around 2.5 seconds to run a task on my local machine.
I did some google and see the PPerl module, which didn't install and looks ancient. I see another called SpeedCGI which also look ancient. Before I went any further, I'd figure I'd check in with the Monks before I wasted any time with deadends. Thanks!
