Hello Shane,

This would be great. I just compiled my first kernel to upgrade to
2.4.1. Yeah!!!

Zope/ZServer fronted by Tux could be a tremendous tool. Allowing Tux to
do as much of what it does best and allowing Zope to do as much as it
does best would be unbeatable.

If Zope could feed Tux cacheable objects without them being required to
be on the filesystem, that would be great. One could develop their site
pretty much the same way with the exception of using the Tux HTTP cache
manager and selecting the objects to be cached.

Tux will forward requests to Zope via either cgi or a user-module. Using
cgi Tux doesn't cache the objects. It wouldn't be as big a gain. A
user-module can take advantage of Tux's user-module API for handling
requests and caching. But as I said, I don't read or program C so I
don't know how to do this. I have started looking at some C tutorial
material so I can at least understand some of the sample code.

There is a sample program written for SpecWeb which gives a better
example of it's user api.

The CAD_u.c module.

Tux is multiprocessor capable, so theoretically you could put Zope/ZEO
on a multiprocessor machine with Tux and have an interesting time. :)

For those who didn't read the initial post about Tux in the other thread
here's info.
