Hi Darren,


I am glad to see that your making progress! I have limited time this
week to look at it but I will see what I can do as I am interested in
this library.


I have had a quick look through the documentation and have a couple of
questions (they could go into an FAQ).


1. I know you have a section on "Server Support" (which seems
to be a placeholder atm) but which web servers have you tested this
with? Have you only tried this with apache? Is the library code


2. Somewhat related to the above if the library code is
portable will the FASTCGI support you are building in only support pipes
or will it also support TCP sockets? The reason I am asking is that
IIS7 will be providing support for the FASTCGI protocol (see for more info).

Hello all,

[Note: please only reply to boost_at_[hidden], don't 'reply all'.

As you may be aware, we have been working on a Boost-style CGI library
for the Google Summer of Code. There is still a lot of work to do on the
code, but it's 'taking shape' now so I'm inviting any interested parties
for their comments. The structure of the library has changed quite
significantly since the GSoC program started, for the better we believe,
but you may disagree. ;) We'd like to know.

The internal links in the docs are mostly not working at the moment,
sorry, but the TOC can be used to get you around.
