in reply to CGI::Minimal does not work with enctype="multipart/form-data"?

My guess is that CGI::Minimal was written without support for file uploads, as they are somewhat complex, and not terribly minimal

    CGI::Minimal documentation says:

    Rather than attempt to address every possible need of a CGI programmer, it provides the _minimum_ functions needed for CGI such as form decoding (including file upload forms), URL encoding and decoding, HTTP usable date generation (RFC1123 compliant dates) and _basic_ escaping and unescaping of HTMLized text.

    I am rather confused by "functions ... for ... file upload forms". Should I just assume it does NOT support it?

[1nickt]: I do think it is sad that roho has received 3 downvotes for his polite request, as did I when I objected to the profanity in stonecolddevin's sig. I upvoted both him and Karl for the discussion. Way too much downvoting for inappropriate reasons here!
Discipulus learn that 'argue' has a little negative sense, he thought was a neutral sense, 'vox media'
[1nickt]: argue == discuss && argue == be contentious
[Discipulus]: you are right 1nickt i didnt voted nor downvoted; I just upvote perl content i like
[1nickt]: In Spanish, to argue (like a fight) is discutir -- does not mean to discuss !
[1nickt]: Sigh, this is why I gave up human-only languages and became a Perl linguist :-)
[Discipulus]: i just, rarely, downvote unpolite posts and spam, and wrong advices
