in thread CGI::Application and object inheritance

Thanks for the input cfreak. What is missing from the code sample is the actual CGI script which calls the new() defined in C::A. I am new to OO use and your answer sheds some light on where my package fits in the big picture. Thanks again.

    Ahh but it does

    In your script you just need to call:

    my $cgi_app = Foo->new();

    Sorry that wasn't clearer. new() in package Foo makes the call my $self = $class->SUPER::new(). Because of the use base statement SUPER now refers to C::A. $cgi_app is an object from which you can access your own methods or the C::A methods. If you need to pass opts to C::A you can modify new() in Foo. I'd modify it so you can pass the opts to the Foo package and it passes them on.

    Hope that makes it a bit clearer
