NAME

CatalystX::GlobalContext - Export Catalyst Context

SYNOPSIS

    package MyApp::Controller::Root;

    use CatalystX::GlobalContext ();

    sub auto : Private {
        my ($self, $c) = @_;
        CatalystX::GlobalContext->set_context($c);
        1;
    }

    package Some::Other::Module;

    use CatalystX::GlobalContext '$c';

    ...
    do stuff with $c
    ...

DESCRIPTION

This module, in combination with Catalyst::Controller::WrapCGI or Catalyst::Controller::CGIBin is for helping you run legacy mod_perl code in Catalyst.

You save a copy of $c somewhere at the beginning of the request cycle, and it is then accessible through an export where you need it.

You can then rip out Apache:: type things, and replace them with things based on $c.

CLASS METHODS

CatalystX::GlobalContext->set_context($c)

Saves a weakened reference to the Catalyst context, which is accessible from other modules as an export.

SEE ALSO

Catalyst::Controller::CGIBin, Catalyst::Controller::WrapCGI, Catalyst
