Error when running the Perl Framework (Http Test Kit)

+2 votes

I recently used the Perl Framework, which is a Perl centric Http test kit. I followed the instructions mentioned in the readme available within the framework which I checked out from the link

The readme states the following steps:
1. You need an installation of Apache. (Either 1.3 or 2.0)
2. Any DSOs you wish to use should be configured in that Apaches
httpd.conf (the test harness will pick this configuration up)
3. Setup:
perl Makefile.PL -apxs /path/to/apache/bin/apxs
4. Run the tests:
5. Evaluate test output.

However, I get an error when I get to the 3rd step saying;

"Cant open perl script "/Perl": No such file or directory"

Hope someone could clarify whats happening here.

In my web-app there is a HTML screen which provides the facility to select and download documents. If user selects some documents (using checkbox) and submits the form then then all of his selected documents gets downloaded in form of a zip file. What I do is that I take users selected documents and then use Archive::Zip to create Zip file. It works fine.

But if the user had selected a lot of documents then the create_zip subroutine takes a lot of time, and if it takes more than 4 minutes (240 seconds) then apache timeout occurs causing the 503 error, but in the backend the subroutine keeps doing the job, but due to the timeout I cant send the created zip file to users browser.

I am confused how to solve this problem.

I have written simple EXCEL sheet gen PEARL code:


 use strict;
 use Spreadsheet::WriteExcel;

 my $workbook = Spreadsheet::WriteExcel->new("simple.xls");
 my $SUMMARY = $workbook->add_worksheet("SUMMARY");

 $SUMMARY->write(0, 0, "START");
 $SUMMARY->write(0, 2, "A");

But it gives following error when I execute through:

I was thinking of an alternative to apache for testing smart-http so that most of http tests could always run. Mongoose [1] looks like a good candidate to bundle with git. Just one pair of source files, mongoose.[ch], a mainloop wrapper and we have an http server. Just wondering, do we rely on any apache-specific features? I'm not so familiar with
