RPC::Any::Interface::CGI - HTTP support for RPC::Any::Server in CGI environments
In a CGI environment (like running under mod_cgi or mod_perl in Apache),
the HTTP headers aren't available on
STDIN--instead they are in special environment variables.
So RPC::Any CGI servers get their input partly from the environment.
So the "input" to
handle_input is just the RPC data,
and the HTTP headers are read from the environment.
you can still pass a CGI server an HTTP::Request object,
in which case it will ignore the environment.)
in a CGI environment,
you can't just print the
HTTP/1.1 200 OK line at the top of the HTTP response,
you have to send a special header,
Status: 200 OK.
So CGI servers return their output in that slightly different way.
