Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

CGI::Session seems to work but...
when trying to install CGI::Application::Plugin::Session
perl 01_basic.t 1..15 ok 1 - use CGI::Application::Plugin::Session; Error executing run mode 'test_mode': Can't use string ("CGI::Session" +) as a HASH ref while "strict refs" in use at /usr/local/lib/perl5/si +te_perl/5.8.8/CGI/ line 143. at 01_basic.t line 13 # Looks like you planned 15 tests but only ran 1. # Looks like your test died just after 1.

    Notice that the error actually occurs in CGI::Session, not CGI::Application::Plugin::Session. What you are seeing is a bug was introduced into CGI::Session in the latest release (v4.10). This was just reported on the mailing list a few hours ago.

    There should be a new version out real soon, but in the mean time, you can downgrade your version of CGI::Session to an older version, and things should start to work.

    try this:
    cpan> force install CGI::Application::Plugin::Session
      Tried it; but alas I then get the same error when I try to use it in a program.
        can you post the code you are using which produces the error?

    It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
