in reply to Is perl cgi a right choice for E-Commerce

Before diving too deeply into whether to use mod_perl or Plack, I suggest that you thoroughly research the very-large field about e-commerce sites in general.   It sounds to me like you are considering starting from scratch, and that is a mistake today.   Quite frankly, there are now so many good vendors out there, who will take care of messy issues like PCI compliance on your behalf, that (up to an obvious and easily-understood point...) I seriously question the wisdom of building anything “new.”

[Lady_Aleena]: I might have to go with options instead of a straight list.
[Discipulus]: if more than 3 go for named variables LA
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, it is at 2 now, but with what I am thinking about, it could go to 3. However, only 1 is needed. The second and third are optional.
[shmem]: straight list or named parameters - that depends on whether (and how many) optional arguments you have
[Discipulus]: if so a plain list is ok, imho
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I already have the plugin installed, just not active.
[shmem]: if you have 1 optional argument, place that at the end of the list. If you have more, go for named parameters.
[Lady_Aleena]: 1 manditory, 2 optional.
[Discipulus]: my ($need,$opta,$optb ) = @_; .. if $opta..
[shmem]: all else leads to trouble, even if the third argument depends on the existence of the second. That may become brittle.
