       FCGI - Fast CGI module

           use FCGI;

           my $count = 0;
           my $request = FCGI::Request();

           while($request->Accept() >= 0) {
               print("Content-type: text/html\r\n\r\n", ++$count);


           Creates a request handle. It has the following optional parameters:

       input perl file handle (default: \*STDIN)

       output perl file handle (default: \*STDOUT)

       error perl file handle (default: \*STDERR)
                   These filehandles will be setup to act as
                   input/output/error on succesful Accept.

       environment hash reference (default: \%ENV)
                   The hash will be populated with the environment.

       socket (default: 0)
                   Socket to communicate with the server.  Can be the result
                   of the OpenSocket function.  For the moment, it's the file
                   descriptor of the socket that should be passed. This may
                   change in the future.

       flags (default: 0)
                   Possible values:

                               If set, Accept will fail if interrupted.  It
                               not set, it will just keep on waiting.

                               Example usage:
                                   my $req = FCGI::Request;

                                   my %env;
                                   my $in = new IO::Handle;
                                   my $out = new IO::Handle;
                                   my $err = new IO::Handle;
                                   my $req = FCGI::Request($in, $out, $err,

       FCGI::OpenSocket(path, backlog)
           Creates a socket suitable to use as an argument to Request.

       path        Pathname of socket or colon followed by local tcp port.

       backlog     Maximum length of the queue of pending connections.  If a
                   connection request arrives with the queue full the client
                   may receive an  error  with  an  indication of

           Close a socket opened with OpenSocket.

           Accepts a connection on $req, attaching the filehandles and
           populating the environment hash.  Returns 0 on success.  If a
           connection has been accepted before, the old one will be finished

           Note that unlike with the old interface, no die and warn handlers
           are installed by default. This means that if you are not running an
           sfio enabled perl, any warn or die message will not end up in the
           server's log by default.  It is advised you set up die and warn
           handlers yourself.  FCGI.pm contains an example of die and warn

           Finishes accepted connection.  Also detaches filehandles.

           Flushes accepted connection.

           Temporarily detaches filehandles on an accepted connection.

           Re-attaches filehandles on an accepted connection.

       $env = $req->GetEnvironment()
           Returns the environment parameter passed to FCGI::Request.

       ($in, $out, $err) = $req->GetHandles()
           Returns the file handle parameters passed to FCGI::Request.

       $isfcgi = $req->IsFastCGI()
           Returns whether or not the program was run as a FastCGI.
