module to allow automatically compressed CGI output
CGI::Compress::Gzip extends the CGI module to auto-detect whether the client browser wants compressed output and, if so and if the script chooses HTML output, apply gzip compression on any content header for STDOUT. CGI::Compress::Gzip is intended to be a drop- in replacement for CGI.pm.
Apache mod_perl users may wish to consider the Apache::Compress or Apache::GzipChain modules, which allow more transparent output compression than this module can provide. However, as of this writing those modules are more aggressive about compressing, regardless of Content-Type.
