[Melbourne-pm] Apache::DBI

Hey Guys

I am working on a set of caching modules for mod_perl.
I absolutely love the transparency of Apache::DBI - you simply load  
the module and then any time you use DBI->connect - it uses the  
cached - or precached versions.

However looking at the code:


I can't figure out how this works.

The code for precache makes sense. But I can't figure out where in  
the code it takes over from DBI->connect. I do know it must be loaded  
before any other module does a "use DBI".

Any ideas guys? My code will be a pre-cached version of a some XSL  
modules - which means that you do nothing new and your code will use  
the precompiled XSL - where as traditionally everyone implements  
their own cache - this means your code works faster when moving from  
CGI to mod_perl - with no code change, or even from Catalyst stand  
alone into Catalyst via mod_perl.

Microsoft is not the answer. It's the question. And the answer is no.
