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]: 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 $opta..
[shmem]: all else leads to trouble, even if the third argument depends on the existence of the second. That may become brittle.
[Discipulus]: but if have case like subname(15,undef,3 ) maybe bettere named parameters
[Lady_Aleena]: I don't want to have to do: alpha_menu($hash, undef, $type);
[Lady_Aleena]: Or what Discipulus said.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: geany supports ctags.
[Discipulus]: a good compromise can be my ($need, $opts_ref) = @_ a scalar and an hash reference
