CGI::Switch - Try more than one constructors and return the first object available


 use CGISwitch;


 use CGI::Switch This, That, CGI::XA, Foo, Bar, CGI;

 my $q = new CGI::Switch;


Per default the new() method tries to call new() in the three packages Apache::CGI, CGI::XA, and CGI. It returns the first CGI object it succeeds with.

The import method allows you to set up the default order of the modules to be tested.


perl(1), Apache(3), CGI(3), CGI::XA(3)

We are painfully aware that these documents may contain incorrect links and misformatted HTML. Such bugs lie in the automatic translation process that automatically created the hundreds and hundreds of separate documents that you find here. Please do not report link or formatting bugs, because we cannot fix per-document problems. The only bug reports that will help us are those that supply working patches to the installhtml or pod2html programs, or to the Pod::HTML module itself, for which I and the entire Perl community will shower you with thanks and praises.

If rather than formatting bugs, you encounter substantive content errors in these documents, such as mistakes in the explanations or code, please use the perlbug utility included with the Perl distribution.
