CGI::Application - One time setup

by Anonymous Monk
on Apr 09, 2013 at 13:34 UTC ( #1027736=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

So I'm working on this CGI::Application, In cgiapp_init the have some database and session things setup. I read the docs and thought this was so that this work was done only once per session. To test this I added a warn "cgiapp_ini - this part runs once";, but notice that each time I click a link this shows up in the server log. Can someone please explain how, in CGI::Application to run code once per visit, so not once per click?
