That's a different thing entirely.
The original post asked about things like loading modules which export
functions. That has nothing to do with your controller, and asking
Catalyst to load such modules via "use Catalst qw( +Some::Module )" is
Or maybe you're suggesting using inheritance to facilitate re-exporting
these methods? Ingy's Spiffy module does that, and in my experience it's a
horrible idea. Yes, it saves you some typing, but it's big hassle for
maintenance. It's just another version of action at a distance.
If you want to share behavior amongst your controller classes, then yes,
creating a single parent controller they all inherit from makes sense.
Your guide to all that's veg. My book blog
