[cgiapp] Multiple run modes

I'm looking at CGI::Application prior to use, and one thing is unclear to me.
I'll outline a little senario to demonstrate the question:
I have a simple app with four run modes - list, view, edit & update
list does what it say on the tin - lists records in a data table
view ditto, displays a single record
edit displays a form to edit (or add) a record
update sends the posted data to the database
In my example, I would like the update run mode to then call the view
run mode, rather then simply display a rather useless 'update
Is there a good way to do this with CA? I suppose a simple option is
to simply have update() call view() and return the results, but I
wondered if there was a preferred solution to this?
Another thought that occurred from scanning the docs would be to put
the update function in prerun, but this seems wrong somehow.
Thanks for any assistance,
