There are many modules available from CPAN for use with Apache and mod_perl. Some are "drop-in" modules which you simply install, configure, and run with the server. Others are modules that are used by other Apache modules. In this section we will list the modules which are currently available, along with a brief description. You will find all of these modules from your local CPAN mirror at http://www.perl.com/CPAN/modules/by-module/Apache/.
Other modules which might not be available yet are listed in the Apache/Perl module list, which is at http://www.perl.com/CPAN/modules/by-module/Apache/apache-modlist.html.
In this appendix we only give terse descriptions of each module just to give you an idea of what the many generous and talented authors have decided to share with us. Please consult each module's documentation for more details.
