in reply to A newbie's thoughts on CGI, and Learning a Lesson

I think that some would probably not use CGI.pm because of their perception of run-time overhead. Overall, 'use CGI;' is wonderful and recommended practice when generating html-type content.

I could see that some would not use it (justifiably) for a very simple page or if it means rewriting what had been developed before CGI.pm became popular.
