CGI::Out - buffer output when building CGI programs
use CGI; use CGI::Out; $query = new CGI; savequery $query; # to reconstruct input $CGI::Out::mailto = 'fred'; # override default of $< out $query->header(); out $query->start_html( -title=>'A test', -author=>'firstname.lastname@example.org'); croak "We're outta here!"; confess "It was my fault: $!"; carp "It was your fault!"; warn "I'm confused"; die "I'm dying.\n"; use CGI::Out qw(carpout $out); carpout(\*LOG); $CGI::Out::out # is the buffer
This is a helper routine for building CGI programs. It buffers stdout until you're completed building your output. If you should get an error before you are finished, then it will display a nice error message (in HTML), log the error, and send email about the problem.
It wraps all of the functions provided by CGI::Carp and Carp. Do not "use" them directly, instead just "use CGI::Out".
