I second the vote for CGI::Prototype. I'd also suggest looking at CGI::Ex::App. It lets you choose if you want some run modes handled by other classes, or handled by locally.

#!/usr/bin/perl package Foo; use strict; use warnings; use base qw(CGI::Ex::App); Foo->new->navigate; exit; sub base_dir_abs { '/var/www/templates' } ### tell the application to ### look for a module to handle each run mode (step) sub allow_morph { 1 } { # This could be in its own file - or # embedded in here is fine # you can get here by going to # /cgi-bin/my_cgi # or /cgi-bin/my_cgi/main # or /cgi-bin/my_cgi?step=main package Foo::Main; sub file_print { return \ <<'HERE'; <h1>Step Main</h1> This is the default run mode. You said [% hello %]. HERE sub hash_swap { return {hello => "I'm main!"}; } } # end of Foo::Main # you get to step2 by calling # /cgi-bin/my_cgi?step=step2 # or # /cgi-bin/my_cgi/step2 # these methods are just sitting the the Foo class sub step2_file_print { return \ <<'HERE'; <h1>I'm in step 2</h1> You said [% hello %]. HERE sub step2_hash_swap { return {hello => 'Hello Step2'}; } # uncomment for a trace of which methods were looked for # sub post_navigate { # use CGI::Ex::Dump qw(debug); # debug shift->dump_history; #}

my @a=qw(random brilliant braindead); print $a[rand(@a)];

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • 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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
