Hi,

$cgi->{POSTDATA} gives me inconsistent results depending on my server

Hmm, that isn't exactly how you spell  $cgi->param('POSTDATA')

I'm sure both CGI.pm maintainer and erlang inets maintainers would be grateful for code that demonstrates these bugs , so they can fix them.

I'm experimenting with an Erlang inets httpd server. If you install Erlang, I can give you the code to start a server.

What version of erlang inets ? Surely even erlang inets httpd server have version numbers :)

When I create a cgi object after reading from STDIN, my curl request to my Erlang server for the cgi script hangs, then times out (but it does succeed on my apache server):

I'm fairly certain thats the version that tries to read from STDIN. So I would suggest checking CGI.pm docs for ->new and use the version of the call that doesn't try to read from STDIN

Why are you replying to your own nodes instead of hitting "reply" to the node you're quoting?

    Sorry about that. I checked my code and it's spelled correctly in my code.

    What version of erlang inets ? Surely even erlang inets httpd server have version numbers :)

    It's actually in the curl output I posted:

    * upload completely sent off: 16 out of 16 bytes < HTTP/1.1 200 OK < Date: Fri, 09 Mar 2018 14:52:03 GMT < Server: inets/6.4.5

    I'm using erlang 20.2, so I assume inets 6.4.5 is the most recent version. Thanks for taking a look.

    I'm fairly certain thats the version that tries to read from STDIN. So I would suggest checking CGI.pm docs for ->new and use the version of the call that doesn't try to read from STDIN

    Yep, my$q->CGI-new('') allows me to use the CGI functions after I manually read from STDIN.
