Module Netcgi_cgi

module Netcgi_cgi: sig .. end
Classical CGI connector.

CGI scripts have poor performance as they are entirely re-run for each request (so it is not possible to cache in the running program database connections for example). Still they are suitable for moderate frequented websites (especially because they run everywhere) and for development.

val run : ?config:Netcgi.config ->
?output_type:Netcgi.output_type ->
?arg_store:Netcgi.arg_store ->
?exn_handler:Netcgi.exn_handler -> (Netcgi.cgi -> unit) -> unit
run f executes f cgi for each cgi request. Contrarily to the other connectors, CGI execute the whole code (even the one outside f) each time the script is accessed. Therefore, one cannot easily cache database connections,...
config : Default: Netcgi.default_config
output_type : Default: `Direct ""
arg_store : Default: `Automatic for all arguments.
exn_handler : See Netcgi.exn_handler. Default: delegate all exceptions to the default handler.
val is_cgi : unit -> bool
is_cgi says whether the script is run in a CGI environment. This allows for example to call the Netcgi_test module if it is not.
