1st code example on page

the line of "===" signs is mis-aligned. Remove all the thinspaces between "=". It should read like the following (viewed in constant-width), with each header ("ID", "Received", "From", "Subject") aligned with the start of a sequence of "===..." below it: format STDOUT_TOP = ID Received From Subject ===== ========== ======================================== ==================== . format STDOUT = @<<<< @<<<<<<<<< @<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< @<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< $_->id $_->received $_->from_address $_->subject

figure 4-3

the figure was built for an old example, and is incorrect and confusing for the current example. Update figure with the following text: - In the first bubble, "/view/beer/1" changes to "/artist/edit/110". - In the third bubble, "view" changes to "edit" and "beer" changes to "artist". - In first bubble on the right, 'Load up row "1"' changes to 'Load up row "110"'. - In the second bubble on the right, "BeerDB::Beer->view" changes to "CD::Artist->edit".

subroutine definition at the bottom of the page

The subroutine defined at the bottom of the page should be named "error" instead of "not_found" for consistency with the text and code in the "A POE Web Server" section (pages 210-212).

3rd Paragraph (in the code)

The line of code: if (SvTRUE(get_sv("MyModule::DEBUG", TRUE")) {... clearly has too many quotes/is missing a quote around TRUE. Either if (SvTRUE(get_sv("MyModule::DEBUG", "TRUE")) {... or if (SvTRUE(get_sv("MyModule::DEBUG", TRUE)) {... worked fine for me (using ActivePerl on XP with VC++6 and similar-ish code: testing whether a variable had been created already in the main package)

Note from the Author or Editor:
The quotes around TRUE should be removed and the line should read: if (SvTRUE(get_sv("MyModule::DEBUG", TRUE)) {... The reported version with "TRUE" will compile but give warnings - get_sv requires an integer, not a string, as second parameter.
