That's a feature of CGI - it's treating your post data as an ISINDEX script. Definitely not something you want to rely on:

#!/usr/local/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use CGI; use Data::Dumper; my $cgi = CGI->new( '{ "Image": { "Width": 800, "Height": 600, "Title": "View from 15th Floor", "Thumbnail": { "Url": "http://www.example.com/image/481989943", "Height": 125, "Width": "100" }, "IDs": [116, 943, 234, 38793] } }' ); print Dumper( $cgi ); $cgi = CGI->new( '{ "Image": { "Width=": 800, "Height": 600, "Title": "View from 15th Floor", "Thumbnail": { "Url": "http://www.example.com/image/481989943", "Height": 125, "Width": "100" }, "IDs": [116, 943, 234, 38793] } }' ); print Dumper( $cgi );
The first dump will show you the JSON data associated with the keyword param. The second dump will show you the hilarity that will ensue if there's an equal signs somewhere in your data.

Your best bet is to provide a cgi_get_query method that deals with the data how you want to deal with it (as outlined in the docs for CGI::Application).

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
