And I think CGI.pm should be procedural module :-). (I have no experience
with File::Spec, so can't comment on it.) I think OO is sometimes

call a method when it's not obvious why this method couldn't just be a
normal subroutine.

And I would use the former. And ISTR a rumour that said that Lincoln Stein
prefers or recommends the procedural method, even though the docs use OO
