NOTE: this Maypole frontend requires additional modules that won't be installed or included with Maypole. Please see below.
This is a CGI platform driver for Maypole. Your application can inherit from CGI::Maypole directly, but it is recommended that you use Maypole::Application.
This module requires CGI::Simple which you will have to install yourself via CPAN or manually.
Call this from your CGI script to start the Maypole application.
This class overrides a set of methods in the base Maypole class to provide it's functionality. See Maypole for these:
Generates output (using
collect_output) and prints it.
Gathers headers and output together into a string and returns it.
Splitting this code out of
send_output supports Maypole::HTTPD::Frontend.
