romanlazarev has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm in the process of writing a code for a web-site. The idea is that it has to be modular in its features.
By saying that I mean, that there is a storage of data and I wish to run a report against this data, all I have to
do is copy a script and hook it up to the main code like a plug-in (think of it like adding a plug-in in a Photoshop).
The question that I'm trying to answer is - how to implement this "plug-in mechanism" in perl?
What about performance (when some snippet of code has to be ran via "shell" of "exec" every time a variable is passed)?
Thank you in advance!
