Why must it run in this environment ? Why not run this as a local
"back-end" service on your server - keep the process running, with the
persistent data copied as an in-memory array, serve look-up requests
from some private port and return the results, and then wait for next
Your CGI then starts up, figures out what it's doing, sends a request to
the local back-end service, gets the reply, return the result to the
end-user and dies - while the back-end just waits for the next request.
Oh, I know, lots of assumptions about persistence, full control over the
server/VPS, update frequency, etc. - but that might not be as weird and
wonderful as some other things you could try.
