Shell script not for CGI

Hello all,
I found acontribution of apmcd47 in an article I read very interesting, here is the link:
The post is named:

I don't understand almost anything about shell scripting, but I'm still determined to learn.
I have a question that I have not been able to solve (so many hours at google and nothing), please tell me that the script shared makes use of CGI technology or just arbitrarily used the word 'cgi' in the path:


I am interested in using shell scripting as a web app backend and I would not like to use CGI or FastCGI, is there a way to do it? Only with common shell scripting. thank you very much for your attention and knowledge.
Best regards

Plack::Handler::CGI - CGI handler for Plack SYNOPSIS
Want to run PSGI application as a CGI script? Rename .psgi to .cgi and change the shebang line like: #!/usr/bin/env plackup # rest of the file can be the same as other .psgi file You can alternatively create a .cgi file that contains something like: #!/usr/bin/perl use Plack::Loader; my $app = Plack::Util::load_psgi("/path/to/app.psgi"); Plack::Loader->auto->run($app); This will auto-recognize the CGI environment variable to load this class. If you really want to explicitly load the CGI handler, you can. For instance you might do this when you want to embed a PSGI application server built into CGI-compatible perl-based web server: use Plack::Handler::CGI; Plack::Handler::CGI->new->run($app); DESCRIPTION
This is a handler module to run any PSGI application as a CGI script. UTILITY METHODS
setup_env() my $env = Plack::Handler::CGI->setup_env(); my $env = Plack::Handler::CGI->setup_env(\%override_env); Sets up the PSGI environment hash for a CGI request from %ENV> and returns it. You can can provide a hashref of key/value pairs to override the defaults if you would like. SEE ALSO
