in reply to How to access an unknown number of CGI variables in a CGI script

Here you go...

use strict; use warnings; use CGI; # do some other stuff..... # either functional style... my @students = param('student[]'); # OR OO-style... my $query = CGI->new; my @students = $query->param('student[]'); # OR Gangnam-style..... # no just kidding :-) # now process your student input, # remember to check no one is sending you weird data ..... foreach my $student (@students) { # wibble }

      Sure, why do you ask?

        Well, I haven't used CGI.pm in my script. I can use it if I need to, but I'm wondering if it's possible to accomplish the above without the use of CGI.pm? Thanks.
