in reply to Maintaining state in modules

Is it a CGI or non-CGI script? Look on the CPAN for 'session' to find ways to keep a session going, and store the info based on the session.

Why not make a base class and subclass it with a way to do it with dbm's. Then, subclass to use MySQL (or whatever). People can subclass to use with whatever data store they wish to use (a DB, flat file, directory structure, etc...) that way your design will make it more portable.

Also, look on the CPAN, and search Google for ways other are maintaining state, so you don't re-invent any wheels.

Cheers,
KM

[Discipulus]: if i had to go to psycho i need to ask why i always end with over complex datastructure: now i have an HoHoAoH in my object
[Discipulus]: i will need to handle by reference later on
[Eily]: kinda sounds like father Christmas is late
[hippo]: (asking because I'm sure you said before about learning English) Did you know there are 2 different words for smaller quantities in English? They are "less" and "fewer". Fewer applies to a number of discrete things like days.
Eily notes also
[hippo]: So if you don't drink as much milk and not as often you are said to drink less milk on fewer days. Confusing, eh?
[Eily]: same as many/much, few/little
