=head1 NAME

Maypole::Application - Universal Maypole Frontend


    use Maypole::Application;

    use Maypole::Application qw(Config::YAML);

    use Maypole::Application qw(-Debug Config::YAML -Setup);

    use Maypole::Application qw(Config::YAML Loader -Setup -Debug);

    use Maypole::Application qw(-Debug2 MasonX AutoUntaint);


This is a universal frontend for mod_perl1, mod_perl2, HTML::Mason and CGI.

Automatically determines the appropriate frontend for your environment (unless
you want to use L<MasonX::Maypole>, in which case include C<MasonX> in the

Loads plugins supplied in the C<use> statement. 

Responds to flags supplied in the C<use> statement. 

Initializes the application's configuration object. 

You can omit the Maypole::Plugin:: prefix from plugins. So
Maypole::Plugin::Config::YAML becomes Config::YAML.

    use Maypole::Application qw(Config::YAML);

You can also set special flags like -Setup, -Debug and -Init.

    use Maypole::Application qw(-Debug Config::YAML -Setup);

The position of plugins in the chain is important, because they are
loaded/executed in the same order they appear.


Under mod_perl (1 or 2), selects L<Apache::MVC>. 

Otherwise, selects L<CGI::Maypole>.

If C<MasonX> is specified, sets L<MasonX::Maypole> as the frontend. This
currently also requires a mod_perl environment.

=head1 FLAGS


=item -Setup

    use Maypole::Application qw(-Setup);

is equivalent to

    use Maypole::Application;

Note that no options are passed to C<setup()>. You must ensure that the
required model config parameters are set in C<MyApp-E<gt>config>. See
L<Maypole::Config> for more information.

=item -Init

    use Maypole::Application qw(-Setup -Init);
is equivalent to

    use Maypole::Application;
Note that the C<-Setup> flag is required for the C<-Init> flag to work.

In persistent environments (e.g. C<mod_perl>), it is useful to call C<init> 
once in the parent server, rather than at the beginning of the first request
to each child server, in order to share the view code loaded during C<init>. 
Note that you must supply all the config data to your app before calling 
C<setup> and C<init>, probably by using one of the C<Maypole::Plugin::Config::*> 

=item -Debug

    use Maypole::Application qw(-Debug);

is equivalent to

    use Maypole::Application;
    sub debug { 1 }

You can specify a higher debug level by saying C<-Debug2> etc.
