in reply to Passing variable to another CGI.pm program

Why pass the name? Use the UID that you are going to glean from /etc/password.

Better yet why not just put the functionality of both CGI scripts into one CGI? This method is a good example of a justification to create modules.

Update: I'm not a big fan of "pipe-fitting" processes together. I remember inheriting a project that suffered from performance issues what consisted of scriptA --pipe--> scriptB --pipe--> scriptC --> and nausuem and back to scriptA types of chains. First thing I did was create modules with the working "guts" of all the scripts and replaced all the scripts. Now if scriptA needed some functionality in scriptB it could access that functionality locally rather than piping.

[tye]: 1) The python stack traces show you the names of variables, not the values of variables. Almost never informative.
[LanX]: do you have a py job now?
[tye]: Right now I have errors trying to fetch stuff from graphite. It says 'apps not ready, check startup logs'. I eventually find the startup logs and see 'no apps found'. Looking for fixes to this problem...
[LanX]: no idea ... ask py monks! ;-p
[tye]: it turns out that this can be caused by almost anything going wrong. If you want to know what caused the problem, you have to try to load each app by-hand to see what problems it is having, because none of those will be logged.
[tye]: No, I write more Perl than py at work. But I have to deal with plenty of py things.
[tye]: py monks would just be offended.
[Corion]: ;)
[Corion]: Hi tye btw ;)
[Corion]: I found plenty of not chatty enough logs with Perl too ... I'm slowly coming to appreciate Log::Log4perl resp. our homegrown alternative
