Subject shared objects across handlers
Date Wed, 04 Aug 2004 19:21:52 GMT
Quick question: is the initialization of new Apache::Request or Apache::Cookie 
objects (parsing, etc.) expensive (or alternatively, cached) such that 
successive calls to new() between multiple modperl handlers for a single request 
would be discouraged?  In other words, if you have multiple handlers operating 
on a given request that use cookie or query parameters, is it better to create a 
new object within each handler or to create it once and attempt to share it 
between handlers (for example, using $r->pnotes())?

The answer probably should be more obvious (or perhaps it's documented 
somewhere), but I wasn't convinced so I figured I'd poll the dev list.
