HTTP::Proxy::Engine::Legacy - The "older" HTTP::Proxy engine
my $proxy = HTTP::Proxy->new( engine => 'Legacy' );
This engine reproduces the older child creation algorithm of HTTP::Proxy. Angelos Karageorgiou "<email@example.com>" reports: I got the Legacy engine to work really fast under "Win32" with the following trick: max_keep_alive_requests(1); max_clients(120); $HTTP::VERSION(1.0); # just in case and it smokes. It seems that forked children are really slow when calling select for handling "keep-alive"d requests!
The module defines the following methods, used by HTTP::Proxy main loop: start() Initialise the engine. run() Implements the forking logic: a new process is forked for each new incoming TCP connection. stop() Reap remaining child processes. The following method is used by the engine internally: reap_zombies() Process the dead child processes.
