      As dave pointed out, this is where the ASP events definitions reside.
      However, since the global.asa is also compiled into the same perl
      package as the rest of the scripts & includes in your application,
      common subroutines & globals can be defined in there too for use
      in your application.

      The trick with getting global.asa to be compiled is your PerlSetVar Global
      setting needs to point to the location it resides at. If your
      global.asa resides in the same directory as your scripts, then set
      Global to . If you would like your $Session & $Application files
      not stored in ./.state in this case ( the default ), then you can
      set StateDir to some other directory ( like /tmp/my_asp_app )

      Doing a require on global.asa has a similar effect, but you should allow
      for Apache::ASP to reload your global.asa, which it will do correctly
      whenever you change it.

        At least on my server, I can add PerlSetVar configs to .htaccess.
