in reply to A patched CGI::Simple for REST applications - comments please

Hello again, I've created a module called REST::Utils which contains a get_body function based in part on our last conversation. It is considerably simpler than the code you have shown above but I wonder if you would like to try it and give it a critique. (And maybe patches if it can be adapted to your needs?)

    From a glance at the code, it seems a handy module when doing REST with CGI.pm-like modules. Good that you released it and the insight it provides along with it to the puplic!

    What remains is the handling of large uploads by handle only. Admittedly, I handled it a bit heavy handed in my patching of CGI::Simple. Still, I see no alternative to switching between handling smaller requests by slurping it all into a var, while larger requests need to remain on STDIN and be read() buffered. Can be done by wrapping your get_body() method with an if/else switch based on POST_MAX.
    Or could be that the abstractions that modules like CGI.pm provide are by design opposites of the low-level access my specific scripts require...

[Lady_Aleena]: Um, how does grep do multiline? print "$file:$_" if grep { /get_(array|hash| data)\(.+\)/ } $_; only returns the same 18 lines the command line grep does.
[Lady_Aleena]: my scratchpad has what I have so far.
[choroba]: what do you mean by multiline?
[Discipulus]: thanks 1nickt!
[choroba]: grep is a filter, it selects elements from a list based on a boolean condition
[moritz]: you need to read the file in one go to do a multiline regex match
[erix]: ha ha, I like the Vigilante
[Lady_Aleena]: Forget it. I'm getting angry with it.
[Lady_Aleena]: I'll just have to search for the files using the subs and open them up.
