in reply to Running a sub before a script exits?

Would calling the save_config from a destructor on the object work for you? Something like the following added to package FooBar:

#untested sub DESTROY { my $self = shift; $self->save_config; }

    Thank you SOOOOO much, that works great! I didn't even know about DESTROY :)

      No problem. ;) I highly recommend all the various OO pods as well as theDamian's Object Oriented Perl. (I consulted the latter about DESTROY right before posting)
