Subject: Setup Method :: Does Not Behave as I Expect
Download (untitled) / with headers

The documentation says: -- setup(name => $value, ...) This method is called with a name => value list of various things to do with the request. This list is given below. The default setup handler simply tries to call methods with the names of keys of this list. -- But I apply the patch (which simply prints out what what the $self->can($item) is attempting to test for), I get: -- If can(dsl::server=HASH(0x814ab44)) If can(GET) If can(HTTP/1.1) If can() If can(/) If can(/) If can(localhost) If can(8080) If can( If can( -- In other words, it's checking for the VALUES not the ITEMS. Here's my little test class: -- #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; my $server=dsl::server->new(); $server->run(); 1; package dsl::server; use base qw(HTTP::Server::Simple); use Carp; use Data::Dumper; sub method { my $self=shift; $self->{'X'}="HELLO"; } sub handler { my $self=shift; if ($self->can('method')) { print "I can method, method and so I should have ".$self->{'X'}." set to something." } } 1; -- NB: The 'I can method...' part at the bottom was to make sure that my Perl was checking the package correctly.
