I've visited the fastcgi site, and it seems the C++ support is still in CVS
version only...
So I think it'd be more reasonable to wait a stable version with C++.
After that it could be easy to simply run it with FastCGI, but to run it
really faster, it needs to redesign a little : all the
initialization process should be at the beginning of the program, and must
be executed once (including the reading of the db if there's enough memory
available). Only the remaining instructions should be executed at each call
(have to be in a while {...} just after the initialization. Is such a
design possible for ?
