Subject a new mod_perl problem
Date Tue, 18 Oct 2005 09:38:17 GMT

I am new to mod_perl.This is my first doubt,and I need some help.

I test this script under mod_perl:

 #!/usr/bin/perl -w
  use strict;
  use warnings;
  print "Content-type: text/plain\r\n\r\n";
  my $counter = 0; # Explicit initialization technically redundant
  for (1..5) {
  sub increment_counter{
    print "Counter is equal to $counter !\r\n";

When I reload from user agent,this script can't work correctly.It seems 
that the script cached the result in memory.The output is:

first run:
  Counter is equal to 1 !
  Counter is equal to 2 !
  Counter is equal to 3 !
  Counter is equal to 4 !
  Counter is equal to 5 !

  Counter is equal to 6 !
  Counter is equal to 7 !
  Counter is equal to 8 !
  Counter is equal to 9 !
  Counter is equal to 10 !

Just as Stas Bekman said,the resolving way is to change the var declare 
my $counter = 0;

our $counter = 0;

I have read Stas Bekman's article,but I CAN'T understand for it.In order to 
avoid persistent vars between requests,we should select using 'my' to 
declare a var.While here we use a 'our' var to resolve the problem.Can 
anyone tell me clearly why this happen?Thanks a lot.
