NAME ^

CGI::Maypole - CGI-based front-end to Maypole

SYNOPSIS ^

     package BeerDB;
     use Maypole::Application;

     ## example beer.cgi:

     #!/usr/bin/perl -w
     use strict;
     use BeerDB;
     BeerDB->run();

Now to access the beer database, type this URL into your browser: http://your.site/cgi-bin/beer.cgi/frontpage

NOTE: this Maypole frontend requires additional modules that won't be installed or included with Maypole. Please see below.

DESCRIPTION ^

This is a CGI platform driver for Maypole. Your application can inherit from CGI::Maypole directly, but it is recommended that you use Maypole::Application.

This module requires CGI::Simple which you will have to install yourself via CPAN or manually.

METHODS ^

run

Call this from your CGI script to start the Maypole application.

Implementation ^

This class overrides a set of methods in the base Maypole class to provide it's functionality. See Maypole for these:

get_request
parse_location
warn
parse_args
redirect_request
get_protocol
send_output

Generates output (using collect_output) and prints it.

collect_output

Gathers headers and output together into a string and returns it.

Splitting this code out of send_output supports Maypole::HTTPD::Frontend.

get_template_root
