            qr|/([^/]+)/([^/]+)/page(\d+)\.html?| => { names =>
                                                         [qw(app rm page)]

DESCRIPTION

CGI::Application::Dispatch uses its own syntax dispatch table. "CGI::Application::Dispatch::Regexp" allows one to use flexible and powerful Perl regular expressions to transform a path into argument list.

DISPATCH TABLE

The dispatch table should contain list of regular expressions with hashref of corresponding parameters. Hash element 'names' is a list of names of regular expression groups. The default table looks like this:
        table       => [
            qr|/([^/]+)/?|          => { names => ['app']      },
            qr|/([^/]+)/([^/]+)/?|  => { names => [qw(app rm)] },
        ],
Here's an example of defining a custom 'page' parameter:
        qr|/([^/]+)/([^/]+)/page(\d+)\.html/?| => {
            names => [qw(app rm page)],
        },
