In This Chapter

This chapter covers the mechanics of developing Apache extension modules in the Perl and C APIs. First we'll show you how to install mod_perl, which you'll need for all Perl API modules, and how to write a simple "Hello World" script. Then we'll show you an equivalent C module implemented both as statically linked code and as a dynamic shared object.

We won't go into the gory details of Apache internals in this chapter--that's deferred until Chapter 3, The Apache Module Architecture and API--but by the end you'll understand the mechanics of getting a new Apache module up and running.
