Call the function without parens. When you use the module, the functions get defined at compile-time.

    Removing the parentheses when calling "referrer()" instead of the properly (for CGI.pm) spelled referer() seems to have no effect. Perl only catches the error at runtime.

      japhy's suggestion only works if you are importing the functions from CGI and not using the OO interface.
