asp-perl(1) Apache::ASP CGI and command line script processor


asp-perl [-hsdb] [-f asp.conf] [-o directory] file1 @arguments file2 @arguments ...

-h Help you are getting now!
-f Specify an alternate configuration file other than ./asp.conf
-s Setup $Session and $Application state for script.
-d Set to debug code upon errors.
-b Only return body of document, no headers.
-o Output directory, writes to files there instead of STDOUT
-p GlobalPackage config, what perl package are the scripts compiled in.


This program will run Apache::ASP scripts from the command line. Each file that is specified will be run, and the $Request->QueryString() and $Request->Form() data will be initialized by the @arguments following the script file name.

The @arguments will be written as space separated words, and will be initialized as an associate array where %arguments = @arguments. As an example:

 asp-perl file.asp key1 value1 key2 value2

would be similar to calling the file.asp in a web environment like


The asp.conf script will be read from the current directory for parameters that would be set with PerlSetVar normally under mod_perl. For more information on how to configure the asp.conf file, please see < >
