in reply to mod_perl and forwarding legacy functions to a global object

How can I create a $new_obj for every request in the Legacy package or otherwise solve my problem?

First, I have to say that global objects are imho no better than just a bunch of subs that share variables.

To answer your question: the easiest way is to subclass the handler you're using. For instance, to subclass Apache::Registry:

package Apache::Registry::ThinkOfANiceName; use base 'Apache::Registry'; sub handler { my $r = shift; local $Legacy::new_obj = New->new; $r->SUPER::handler(@_); } 1;

Juerd # { site => '', plp_site => '', do_not_use => 'spamtrap' }
