Ok, lets try this question again. I have data that is being sent to me via http POST. The data will contain &;
, and it will not be escaped. There will also be no parameter name passed. I've looked it up, and because the content-type is text/xml, this IS
exactly how it is suppost to be sent. They aren't sending it as a file attachment either.
Now everyone repeate after me <chant>I can't change the input, I can't change the input, I can't change the input</chant>.
My questions now:
Can it be done with CGI.pm?
If it can, how?
If it can't, should it be something that is added to CGI.pm, or should another module be created to handle this?
I hope my intent in this post is clearer then it was in the last post.
P.S. Thanks perrin & CMonster.
