mod_parrot is an Apache module that exposes the Apache API to a Parrot virtual machine interpreter. This allows one to write custom Apache handlers in PIR or one of many high level languages (HLL) that target Parrot. Additionally, mod_parrot provides a persistent environment for these handlers to run, which can result in a significant performance increase for CGI scripts. mod_parrot is the foundation for the development of mod_perl6.


  • Expose the Apache API and data structures to Parrot
  • Provide a common Apache layer for HLLs
