      For one thing, Apache::ASP doesn't use PerlScript. It uses real Perl.
      That means that you have access to all the features and capabilities of
      your currently installed version of Perl (including all of your
      installed modules). You also have access to all the features of your
      currently installed version of mod_perl and Apache via the Apache
      object.
