in reply to RFC: Apache::Controller

If you're aiming for using such a beast directly as an Apache handler, you could say:

package My::App; use base 'CGI::Application'; sub handler { my $r = shift; __PACKAGE__->new->run; } # Rest of CGI::Application code

Nothing to it, really. No need for wheel-reinvention when this wheel will do what you want.

    Hmm, of course it looks simple and obvious when someone else does it. Maybe they should put an example like this in the CGI::Application docs. The only mention I saw of mod_perl said that it could be used with Apache::Registry, which caused me to immediately look elsewhere.

      Re: C::A and mod_perl. I guess the best place to go after the docs is the Wiki entry on using a mod_perl handler. Alas, the wiki doesn't seem to be as well known as it should be....
