i meant some sort of ipc would be needed for apache to activate the perl.

if the perl is running in the background, as you suggested, it needs to know when to run and with what data to use. therefore a smaller script which was directly run as a cgi (by apache) would have to send an IPC call to the perl running in the background,
to tell it to generate the page etc.

and then we'd need a simple stdout trick to get it to eventually give the output back to apache.

For what? Anything which touches the database will use the MySQL client
code. It's trivial to use with either C or Perl, so I'm not sure why raw
sockets are needed.
