    I think making the assumption that "Web Development with Apache and Perl" can only come via mod_perl is a really poor assumption.
    • If the title of the book was "Effective Web Development with Apache and Perl", then one would expect it be deal extensively with mod_perl. Sure, you don't have to use mod_perl to use perl CGI programs on Apache. Just as I can undertake software development without any form of source code control and version management.

      Both approaches are fine for "mickey mouse" projects. Once you start to do commercial level development, you use proper change management practises. The same applies with Web Development.

    • I beg your pardon. I never implied only.
      However when Apache and Perl are spoken
      in the same breath this usually means
      mod_perl. Therefore, this is not a poor
      assumption. An incorrect one, yes.
      I felt it was an assumption many might
      make, so I drew particular attention to
      this in the review.
