=head1 NAME

public-inbox.cgi - CGI wrapper for PublicInbox::WWW

=head1 SYNOPSIS

You generally want to run public-inbox-httpd, instead

=head1 DESCRIPTION

public-inbox.cgi provides a CGI interface wrapper on top of the
PSGI/Plack L<PublicInbox::WWW> module.  It is only provided for
compatibility reasons and NOT recommended.

CGI with Perl is slow due to code loading overhead and web servers lack
the scheduling fairness of L<public-inbox-httpd(1)> for handling git
clones and streaming large mbox downloads.
