CGI - How to use upload_hook and query the query string ?by roadrunner (Acolyte)

roadrunner has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
More upload-related questioning - I'm using the CGI::upload_hook functionality and would like to get a parameter value passed in via POST *before* calling the upload hook to process files. i.e. Something like this:
Now according to the CGI docs this doesn't look possible:
"If using the function-oriented interface, call the CGI::upload_hook() method before calling param() or any other CGI functions: CGI::upload_hook(\&hook,$data);"
...and indeed my exprience bears this out - If I try and query any params before calling the upload hook I get missing data in the hook. Does anyone know of a way round this - i.e. querying parameter values before calling an upload hook ?
