I am using CAP::Routes and it works very well for me.
First off, I am using ScriptAlias to map the url and hide the script
name it the url:
So I have a few lines in my /etc/apache2/sites-available/app virtual host file:
ScriptAlias /contacts /var/www/app/cgi-bin/contacts.cgi
ScriptAlias /jobs /var/www/app/cgi-bin/jobs.cgi
ScriptAlias /titles /var/www/app/cgi-bin/titles.cgi
Then in contacts.cgi:
my $app = App::Contacts->new();
and finally the run modes in Contacts.pm
my $self = shift;
'' => 'view' ,
'/guest' => 'guest',
'/staff/edit/:id' => 'edit_staff',
'/staff/process/:id' => 'edit_staff_process',
'/:id/address/new' => 'edit_address',
'/:id/address/:id2' => 'edit_address',
'/:id/address/process/:id2' => 'edit_address_process',
'/:id/email/process/:id2' => 'edit_email_process',
'/:id/email/new' => 'edit_email',
'/:id/email/:id2' => 'edit_email',
'/:id' => 'view' ,
Then my urls are e.g.
http://mysite/contacts - default page
http://mysite/contacts/1234 - view a specific contact record
http://mysite/contacts/1234/address/new - add address to a contact record
Note that I haven't got the /contacts/ bit in my routes_root - it
doesn't seem to need it.
I've been using this for 6 months plus now and as I say it works really well.
Hope this helps.
