This module is a mod_perl2 interface to
JavaScript::Autocomplete::Backend, which is a base
class for implementing an autocomplete service
for a form using the Google Suggest protocol.
See http://www.google.com/webhp?complete=1&hl=en
for an illustration of Google Suggest in operation,
as well as
http://serversideguy.blogspot.com/2004/12/google-suggest-dissected.html
for a description of how the JavaScript code works.
See the documentation for
Apache2::Autocomplete for details.

Besides mod_perl2, the package requires JavaScript::Autocomplete::Backend, 
as well as a CGI.pm-compatible
CGI module for supplying param() and header() methods.
If available, CGI::Apache2::Wrapper will be used,
which is a minimal module that uses methods of mod_perl2
and Apache2::Request to provide these methods; if this
is not available, CGI.pm (version 2.93 or greater) will be used.

Installation proceeds through the usual
   perl Makefile.PL
   $MAKE
   $MAKE test
   $MAKE install
or, if Module::Build is available,
   perl Build.PL
   perl Build
   perl Build test
   perl Build install
A ppm package for Win32 users of ActivePerl 8xx can be installed
by adding http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms/ to your list
of repositories and then issuing the command
   C:\> ppm install Apache2-Autocomplete
