App::Context::Cmd - context in which we are currently running


   # ... official way to get a Context object ...
   use App;
   $context = App->context();
   $config = $context->config();   # get the configuration
   $config->dispatch_events();     # dispatch events

   # ... alternative way (used internally) ...
   use App::Context::Cmd;
   $context = App::Context::Cmd->new();


A Context class models the environment (aka "context) in which the current process is running. For the App::Context::Cmd class, this models any of the web application runtime environments which employ the Cmd protocol and produce HTML pages as output. This includes CGI, mod_perl, FastCGI, etc. The difference between these environments is not in the Context but in the implementation of the Request and Response objects.



The user() method returns the username of the authenticated user. The special name, "guest", refers to the unauthenticated (anonymous) user.

    * Signature: $username = $context->user();
    * Param:  void
    * Return: string
    * Throws: <none>
    * Since:  0.01

    Sample Usage: 

    $username = $context->user();
