( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
hey! cool! finally a discussion about C::A with a lot of good arguments (mod_perl reusability, etc.)
but a lot of monks pointed out that the if/elsif constructs (that i use a lot) are inherently flawed, and i'd just like to take advantage and ask why?
assuming one doesn't use any advanced features of C::A, does one actually gain a lot by using it? is calling a sub noticably faster than letting the perl interpreter run through all the conditions? why exactly does C::A increase code mainainabilty?

to explain my situation: i bundle up anything related in seperate .pl files, which all do global start-up scripts (for session-handling, db-connections, etc.), and all 'interesting' and reusable subs are inside various modules that get used where appropiate.
i'm just wondering whether i'd gain a lot by switching to C::A (which, AFAIK, wouldn't be tooooo hard), because of the tons of positive comments about it...
