in reply to HTML::Mason and Frames

Is this some kind of global template that you're working with here? What you're currently doing is forcing the next component in the chain to return a URL, which seems like it probably isn't what you want since the next one in the chain is likely either another autohandler, a dhandler, or a page.

First off, why use frames at all when you're using Mason? You can simply turn the footer into a component that outputs HTML, and call it from the autohandler like so:

<html> <head> <title><% $m->base_comp->attr('title') %></title> </head> <body> <% $m->call_next() %> <& /template/footer.comp &> </body> </html>

Come to think of it, I think it's highly likely you'll get caught in some type of endless recursion unless you configure Mason so that it handles only files of type .mhtml, and then have your next component return links to files of type html which wouldn't be handled by Mason.

    I need frames because I have effectively three panels - one is a query construction panel, a second which lists the immediate results of that query, and a third which displays the details of an element selected from the list of query results. If I dont' have frames, I need to re-issue the query (or somehow store the query results in a hidden field) each time I interact with the page... and the queries are not quick!
