My monster Windows GUI application (all written in Perl and Tk!) just refuses to lie down. It is approaching 50,000 lines and the client seems to want it to get bigger.
Right now I have been requested to add support for an API which is not really an API in my book! It was written to support web servers and you start a process by sending it a POST with a complex set of custom headers and an XML file of data. The responses come back as HTTP GET requests to a server. What I need to do is have an HTTP server that will handle some basic CGI - ie it should take the XML which is sent by the remote 'client' - parse it, and store the resultant information in a database (we are using MySQL already on the project so this is no issue).
What suggestions do you have for a simple, Perl based preferably, HTTP server for Windows (2000 & XP) which I will probably start as one or more spearate processes and just let them run. They do not need to interact with the programme at all.
