=head1 NAME

Catalyst::ScriptRunner - The Catalyst Framework script runner


    # Will run MyApp::Script::Server if it exists, otherwise
    # will run Catalyst::Script::Server.
    Catalyst::ScriptRunner->run('MyApp', 'Server');


This class is responsible for loading and running scripts, either in the
application specific namespace
(e.g. C<MyApp::Script::Server>), or the Catalyst namespace (e.g. C<Catalyst::Script::Server>).

If your application contains a custom script, then it will be used in preference to the generic
script, and is expected to sub-class the standard script.


Catalyst will automatically load and apply roles to the scripts in your

C<MyApp::TraitFor::Script> will be loaded if present, and will be applied to B<ALL>

C<MyApp::TraitFor::Script::XXXX> will be loaded (if present) and for script

=head1 METHODS

=head2 run ($application_class, $scriptclass)

Called with two parameters, the application class (e.g. MyApp)
and the script class, (i.e. one of Server/FastCGI/CGI/Create/Test)

=head2 find_script_class ($appname, $script_name)

Finds and loads the class for the script, trying the application specific
script first, and falling back to the generic script. Returns the script
which was loaded.

=head2 find_script_traits ($appname, @try)

Finds and loads a set of traits. Returns the list of traits which were loaded.
