( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm having issues accessing a CGI object in the main namespace from within a 'require'-ed file...For instance, this is my main script:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use CGI; use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser); require ""; # define a hash to contain any "global" objects or variables our %GLOBAL = ( 'query' => '', 'test' => 'foobar!' ); $GLOBAL{'query'} = new CGI; print CGI::header(); outputTest(); outputPOST();
and this is the library file it requires (
sub outputTest { print $main::GLOBAL{'test'}; } sub outputPOST { print $main::GLOBAL{'query'}->Vars; } 1;
running this as-is throws up an Internal Server Error, which is strange considering i'm using fatalsToBrowser. i'm sure the problem is with the CGI query object, because if I remove the outputPost subroutine, it runs fine.

am I just missing something vitally obvious?

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
