Re: Reading Raw data in CGI::Applicationby andyford (Curate)
|on Jan 04, 2007 at 21:18 UTC||Need Help??|
I've been using the JSON header via CGI::Application::Plugin::JSON to send data from a CGI::Application webapp. Say you have a runmode called "blackout". Here's an untested sketch:
Notice the span tag: I couldn't find a way to get it working without putting someting in the body of the page, so I just stuck the message in there. Figured it would at least mean something if it ever got displayed by a browser.
Now on the other end, I'm using the prototype library to get the JSON out of the header.
I don't know how to do Ajax without prototype, so this is the best I can give you.
Update: explicitly mention CGI::Application::Plugin::JSON
