in reply to Paradigm Shift - Don't use strict

Salzenberg's Rules of Programming, Number Zero: "Anything that works is better than anything that doesn't."

And CGI.pm does, in fact, work.

That said: CGI.pm is atrocious in its style and horrifying in its design sense. It should be distributed in the directory examples/bad. I would welcome a well-written alternative. Atually, I'd welcome several well-written alternatives, one for each of the current module's several problem domains.

Sigh.... So many kludges, so little time.
