I stumbled upon this framework during my research on web development frameworks in Perl.
Compared to a couple of hours of trying to install Catalyst on my machine(Windows XP Pro) i could get a complete mini application running in about 30 minutes.
One issue which i encountered was when i tried to do NTML authentication using mod_sspi(Apache 2.2). I kept getting the error "Malformed Multi Part Post".
I tried a few things and delved into the framework code. After spending a couple of hours, i decided to move over to CGI::Application. Which has a similar flavor.
