==== Description: ====
The fastcgi++ library started out as a C++ alternative to the official
FastCGI developers kit. It is released under the GNU Lesser General Public
License. Although the official developers kit provided some degree of C++
interface, it was very limited. The goal of this project was to provide a
framework that offered all the facilities that the C++ language has to offer.
Over time the scope broadened to the point that it became more than just a
simple protocol library, but a platform to develop web application under C++.
To the dismay of many, this library has zero support for the old CGI protocol.
The consensus was that if one were to be developing web applications under
C++, efficient memory management and CPU usage would be a top priority, not
CGI compatibility. Effective management of simultaneous requests without the
need for multiple threads is something that fastcgi++ does best. Session data
is organized into meaningful data types as opposed to a series of text
strings. Internationalization and Unicode support is another top priority. The
library is templated to allow internal wide character use for efficient text
processing while code converting down to utf-8 upon transmission to the

I don't mind waiting before transfering it over. But it would be nice if it
wasn't a three month wait :)
