Log Message:
Update p5-CGI-Application from version 2.1 to 3.31.
Added a HOMEPAGE pointing into CPAN.

Change log:

3.31 Sun Sep 26, 2004
    - Documentation clean-ups. No code changes.

3.30  Sun Sep 26, 2004
    - Refactored test suite to use Test::More (Gabor Szabo)
    - Removed warnings being emitted for documented API calls
    - minor code clean-up to load_tmpl() (Emanuele Zeppieri)
	- Support for passing multiple template paths to HTML::Template
	  (Michael Peters)
	- Added error_mode to support trapping runmodes dying (Rob Kinyon)
	- Added Plug-in related documentation. (Mark Stosberg)
	- mode_param() updated to more easily set the run mode from
	  $ENV{PATH_INFO} (Mark Stosberg)

3.22  Fri Feb 13, 2004
    - The nocgicarp flag introduced in 3.2 has now been removed due
      to ill importing side effects. Instead, we now simply use Carp
      instead of CGI::Carp. You must now explicitly load CGI::Carp if you want
      it. Any code that used the brief-lived 'nocgicarp' feature will need to
      be updated.
    - Support for run modes named '0'. (Josh Glover)

3.21  Wed Feb 4, 2004
    - Updated some header tests to be compatible with old and new versions of, which handled the capitalization of the header differently.
      (Mark Stosberg)

3.2   Sat Jan 31, 2004
    - header_add() has been added to allow setting extra headers, particularly
      cookies, after header_props has already been called (Cees Hek,
      Mark Stosberg)
    - CGI::Carp is now optional. See docs for details. (Steve Hay)
    - Avoid 'unitialized value' warning on redirects (Cees Hek)
    - Some tests added (Mark Stosberg)
    - Updated documentation to use term "Run Mode" consistently, versus
      "Run-Mode" with a dash. Run-mode-with-a-dash is dead. Don't revive it.
      Also added mentions of the CGI::Application wiki and
      CGI::Application::ValidateRM (Mark Stosberg)
    - Fixed typo in cgiapp_postrun documentation (Steve Hay)
    - Improved exception handling (Steve Hay)
    - delete() method added to remove items stored using param()
      (Michael Peters)
    - 'CGI_APP_RETURN_ONLY' environment variable that is used for testing is now
      documented (Michael Peters)
    - dump_html() is now properly HTML-escaped (podmaster, Brian Cassidy)
    - Migrated from Makefile.PL to Build.PL. Either can now be used for
    - Updated 'Changes' file to put new releases on top.

3.1   Mon Jun  2 07:54:31 EDT 2003
    - Changed dump_html default run mode to be referenced by name
      instead of sub-ref.  This allows dump_html() to be overridden
      in sub-class.
	- Added current run mode to output of dump() and dump_html().
	  (Thanks to Mark Stosberg for the suggestion.)
	- Added example of doing an HTTP redirect (suggested by Sam Tregar)
	- Fixed bug where query objects couldn't be set
	  at initialization time via the new() method.  (Thanks to Steve
	  Hay for the catch.)
    - Added header_type("none") to surpress HTTP header output.
      (Thanks to Steve Comrie for the suggestion.)
    - Numerous typos corrected in POD.
    - Added cgiapp_postrun() hook.  This hook allows run mode output
      to be "pipelined" through optional filters, modifying the
      content and HTTP headers if so desired.

3.0   Sat Feb  1 02:27:19 EST 2003
	- Changed run_modes() method to allow list of run modes to be
	  designated via an array reference.  This will automatically
	  create a run modes table which maps from a run mode to a
	  run mode method of the same name.  Bumped major revision
	  number to reflect this significant change in functionality.
	- Clarified license for module (GPL or Artistic).  Included
	  licenses in distribution package.

2.6   Mon Oct  7 07:34:35 EDT 2002
	- Changed the run() method to use Perl's built-in dynamic method
	  call for all run modes, whether by name or by code ref.  This
	  is intended to improve run-time performance somewhat.  Thanks
	  to Darin McBride for this patch.
	- Added new override-able method cgiapp_get_query().  This method
	  is called when CGI::Application first needs access to the CGI
	  query object.  By default, this is a object.  It is
	  possible to override the cgiapp_get_query() method to return
	  an object of some other module besides, providing
	  that it is sufficiently compatible.  Thanks to Eric Andreychek
	  for the suggestion and his help troubleshooting the code.

2.5   Thu Jul 18 07:45:47 EDT 2002
	- Changed mailing list address.  The new mailing list address.

2.4   Sat May 25 13:32:44 EDT 2002
	- Modified tmpl_path() to propagate to HTML::Template's PATH
	  parameter.  This provides much more useful and intuitive
	  behavior.  Thanks to Sam Tregar for the patch!
	- Added prerun_mode() method to allow the run mode to be
	  dynamically changed inside the cgiapp_prerun() method.
	  Thanks to Steve Comrie for the suggestion of using a
	  method call for this function.  Thanks to many other list
	  members for further refining this idea.
	- Refactored some test cases, general code clean-up.
	- Refactored POD a bit to make it less intimidating for
	  new users.

2.3   Mon May  6 07:12:09 EDT 2002
	- Fixed minor bug in build system for older Perl versions.

2.2   Sun Aug 19 12:20:21 EDT 2001
	- Added new module CGI::Application::Mailform as both an
	  example of how to use CGI::Application and a useful
	  (albeit simple) reusable web-based application.
	- CGI::Application::Mailform allows the contents of
	  data submitted through HTML forms to be easily sent
	  via email to a specified recipient.  This application
	  is intended to be very easy to reuse, yet secure
	  and functional enough to replace some of the most
	  onerous "mailform" scripts which have been floating
	  around the Internet for ages.
	- Added cgiapp_prerun() hook, for adding global behaviors
	  before the run mode method is called.  The cgiapp_prerun()
	  gets the name of the run mode as a parameter.  This would
	  allow the user to perform some action based on the
	  current run mode.
