FastCGI is an open extension to CGI that provides high performance for all Internet applications without the penalties of Web server APIs. FastCGI is designed to be layered on top of existing Web server APIs. For instance, the mod_fastcgi Apache module adds FastCGI support to the Apache server. FastCGI can also be used, with reduced functionality and reduced performance, on any Web server that supports CGI. This FastCGI Developer's Kit is designed to make developing FastCGI applications easy. The kit currently supports FastCGI applications written in C/C++, Perl, Tcl, and Java. This package contains only shared libraries used by programs developed using FastCGI Developer's Kit and cgi-fcgi (bridge from CGI to FastCGI).
