Current Perl documentation can be found at perldoc.perl.org.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:

In the context of an HTML form, you can use what's known as multipart/form-data encoding. The CGI.pm module (available from CPAN) supports this in the start_multipart_form() method, which isn't the same as the startform() method.

[shmem]: erix: bad idea. PerlMonks is based on everything
[robby_dobby]: shmem:everything2
robby_dobby says Sorry and points to his boredom
[shmem]: robby_dobby: since everything is everything, it is thus also everything2. And everything2 is based on... you name it.
[Corion]: Mhhmmm. I just had to remind two contractos of their priorities from my point of view. This felt somewhat like getting my godson+siblings to clean their room, including the evil eye I threw them ;)
