version = 4.14 This is not a bug, so much as a usability suggestion. Because I saw that 'load' was a class method, I tried calling it like this: my $session = CGI::Session::load('joe'); That results in the following error message: Can't locate object method "query" via package "joe2" at /usr/.../Session.pm line 664. This is obviously my own error, not a bug. The docs show the correct syntax, I just missed it. However, I see that you do a fair amount of argument error-checking, so I thought I'd suggest this, because it took me a lot of time to figure out. I think that you could simply add a check for (@_ == 0) in sub load, after the initial 'shift' line, to catch and report the error. Otherwise, thanks for sharing what looks like a useful module. -Joe

Joe, I'm not quite sure what you have in mind. Maybe you could submit a patch? The (@_ == 0) case is what you showed above. Considering the docs show the correct syntax, I'm not so inclined to take action on this. Mark -- http://mark.stosberg.com/
Resolving as not-our-bug, per Ron Savage's suggestion. Mark
