NAME

CGI::SSI_Parser - Implement SSI for Perl CGI

SYNOPSIS

  use CGI::SSI_Parser;
  $CGI::SSI_Parser::recursive = 1;
  fssi($filename);
  sssi($string);

DESCRIPTION

CGI::SSI_Parser is used in CGI scripts for parsing SSI directives in files or string variables, and fully implements the functionality of apache's mod_include module.
It is an alternative to famous Apache::SSI modules, but it doesn't require mod_perl. This is an advantage to those who are using public hosting services. There is a disadvantage, however - the module consumes much memory, and I don't recommend using it on heavy-loaded sites (currently it's being used on a site with 10000 hits, and I consider this as a limit). I hope to get rid of this disadvantage by the time the release comes out (currently it's beta).

SSI Directives

This module supports the same directives as mod_include. For methods listed below but not documented, please see mod_include's online documentation at http://httpd.apache.org/docs/mod/mod_include.html .
config
echo
 
This directive is not fully supported in current version.
exec
fsize
flastmod
include
printenv
set
 
This directive is not supported in current version.
perl
 
This directive is not supported in current version.
if
elif
else
endif
 
These four directives are not supported in current version.

Outline Usage

First you need to load the CGI::SSI_Parser module:
  use CGI::SSI_Parser;
You need to specify the following when processing of all nested directives is needed (default value - 0):
 $CGI::SSI_Parser::recursive = 1;
To parse file or string you need to use:
  fssi($filename);
  sssi($string);
The result is printed to STDOUT.

TO DO

Full implementation of all SSI directives.
Optimize memory consumption.
