in reply to CGI::Application with 'main' runmodes and 'sub' runmodes

Hmmm ... that exit at the end of each method is a real bad code smell. It may be perfectly okay but I think it would give most CGI::Application'ers pause.

Without knowing about your app, it's really hard to comment on your approach. For me, once the run modes start getting past a half-dozen or so, I start looking for ways to refactor. Either as other apps or by taking a hard look at my runmodes and deciding their not really runmodes but maybe differing views or differing model of a runmode -- moving those decisions further down into the controller.

    Thanks for your response.
    ...a real bad code smell.
    I agree. A previous 'refactoring' had each 'main runmode' take the second element of path_info and run it through a dispatch table. I just had the feeling that I could let C::A handle that too.

    My last effort was, as you say, to separate out the main runmodes as separate C::A apps each with its own instance script. I have a Base.pm that inits everything thats needed and all common code is in its own module. So perhaps the separate apps idea is the way to go.
