CNET: Aid From APR
Feb 26, 2001, 05 :57 UTC (0 Talkback[s]) (532 reads) (Other stories by Ryan Bloom)

"With Apache 2.0, the Apache Software Foundation has branched into more than just Web servers. In this column I will discuss one of the newest ASF projects, the Apache Portable Runtime (APR). APR is a library of C functions that make C programs very portable among different platforms. Web site administrators should be aware of the advantages of having CGI scripts and Apache modules written in C."

"... APR also makes it possible for Web builders to write CGIs in C and to trade them with other Web builders who use Apache. These programs will run equally well on Apache on any platform. CGIs written in C will run faster than scripts in languages such as Perl or Python because C programs are precompiled, while Perl and Python must be interpreted on the fly."
