The dhttp kit (http://udell.roninhouse.com/examples/dhttp-v2.tar.gz) installs by unzipping into any subdirectory on a Unix or NT box equipped with Perl 5. You’ll need CPAN’s DBI and a DBD datasource driver if you want to run the apps I’ve included with dhttp or try your own database-oriented apps. You’ll also need CPAN’s Net::NNTP for the HelpDesk (hd) app described in Chapter 9.
The dhttp distribution divides into the following three parts.
The main driver; starts the engine and load the apps
