Hi Andy,

Thank you for replying my email.

If not a stand alone mod_octave, how about something that works with
mod_* and frees the web server from loading the octave interpreter
every time a new octave task needs to be evaluated?

Can any of the suggestions you mentioned do that?

What would you like mod_octave to do?

Octave has no implentation of CGI handling modules,
to you'd have to do all the painful parsing yourself.

Perhaps you may want to look at using
mod_perl, with Inline::Octave?

or mod_tcl and Paul Kienzle's octave/tcl bindings?

I browsed through some mailing list  archives  about running octave
over the web,
and there were two major roadblocks:

1. security
2. performance.

The second issue can be addressed if octave becomes a apache module and
the performance can be greatly improved especially with the octave
executable that is built with fast libraries like atlas.

Mod_octave doesn't have anything to do with being
secure or not, but for people who only want to offer some
web applications with their own scripts, it's not a concern.

Has anyone tried that. I don't know much about apache module,
but I just installed mod_ruby on my powerMac and I will surely
like to use octave for web applications.
