[Nagiosplug-devel] Embedded Perl

some questions from Germany. Sorry for writing to so much lists.

I have set up Nagios 1.0a7 on Solaris 8 successfully and every
thinks runs just better than expected from good old Netsaint.

I compiled Nagios with embedded perl support (nagios -m shows it).
Is it right this mechanism works only for plugins? Are all Perl-
plugins executed automatically as embedded ones by enabling this?

Is there a way for using it for the cgi's (those in the 
${NAGIOS_HOME}/sbin), as I want to write some extension for Nagios,
but in Perl. What would be the best way to make it so?

I have read quite enough manpages and docs over the net for
embedded perl and also tested something, but it seems I can't
embed my perl stuff into Nagios. I tested it with the mini_epn
and p1.pl. Has anybody a framework for an embedded perl module
to get me started?

Enough for the moment ...
