Module for handling the wierdness that entails when you move from normal cgi scripting into the wonderful world of mod_perl.

The mod_perl object needs to know which response handler is being used. This is a manditory argument.

Sessions are saved in a cleanup handler by default, as well as when the Lazy object is destroyed. (call me paranoid) If you wish to disable the mod_perl handler save, set saveOnCleanup => 0. If it's not set, it's the same as if it was set to 1.



Mod_perl cleanup handler for saving session data. Called automatically if using both mod_perl and session plugins.

new ( q )



CGI::Lazy object

vars ()

Returns mod_perl object settings from config.
