I have taken this code from the apache-asp.org/ page:
Code:
 PerlModule  Apache::ASP
 <Files ~ (\.asp)>   
   SetHandler  perl-script
   PerlHandler Apache::ASP
   PerlSetVar  Global .
   PerlSetVar  StateDir /tmp/asp
 </Files>


I am in the process of getting AS MANY PPM's as possible.

Now in the example above it gives PerlHandler Apache::ASP. I've noticed in windows that it's not :: instead it's dash (-) and that linux is :: Which one do I type in in configuring apache?

I need to know how do I type in a boat load of'em? As many as will install? How and were do I config that at? I have seen somewhere's back in the days someone had a .txt file loading up perl modules stuck in there htdocs folder. Can I do that? *thinking* I think that was XAMP or something like that. I had ran it first b4 I came across apachelounge. I can't think of it off the top of my head right now but it was apache with everything coded on it already php, mysql,perl, etc. Anyways they had a txt file with loaded up perl modules already in it. It there a way to do that? What it the code for that? How & Were do I type that in at? By the time I get done with these things man that file is gonna be huge : ) and probably gonna a long process in coding but welcome to real world in webserver land. Basically what i'm asking is how do I code in a lot of'em?

I think what you want is to pre-load a series of modules. If this is the case and you are using Mod_Perl, look at the PerlRequire sub-section (extra.pl) in the Description section in the below link:

Yes exactly what I am looking for thankx.

Now I have read that and it gives :: and not - (dash). Which one do I use when coding the extra.pl file? Sorry for the confusion but in windows ppm gui it gives dash instead of :: So which one do I use when coding extra.pl?

If you noticed, it is titled "Configuring mod_perl 2.0 for Win32". Do what they say, remember that the PL file is a script and not the PPM GUI. Be brave...be bold...It's not like your system is going to explode over a syntax error in a script file.

In the hope of removing further confusion on your part, when in Perl (scripts or modules)(regardless of platform) use :: (colon colon), when in the PPM (Win32 GUI) use - (hyphen).

The PPM (Perl Package Manager) GUI is just that - a Graphical User Interface. It helps you manage (install, update, or remove) the PM's (PERL Modules) on your system.

The extra.pl is a file that happens to contain PERL script - aka script file.

Definitely heed the LoadFile note. It should come BEFORE all the LoadModule declarations.
