Usage

1. Create your catalyst application from the scratch

$ cd /tmp/ 
$ catalyst.pl Foo
$ cd Foo
$ perl Makefile.PL
$ make
$ make test
$ make install

2. Deploy it as fast cgi server via catalyst cookbook

catalyst_application 'foo' do
    application_home '/tmp/Foo'
    application_script 'foo_fastcgi.pl'
    catalyst_config '/tmp/Foo/foo.conf'
    action 'install'
end

3. Now you have catalyst application running as fastcgi server

/etc/init.d/foo start
/etc/init.d/foo stop
/etc/init.d/foo restart
