Browsers send info?by Gorby (Monk)

Gorby has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hello Wise Monks. Are the following statements regarding cgi programming in perl true?
1. When a browser visits a site generated by a perl cgi script, that browser can send headers containing information enclosed in tags that it chooses to make available. (i.e. <INFO> my number is 1234 </INFO>)
2. The target perl cgi script can capture the information between the tags and use it.
If these statements are true, what functions in perl should I use to capture the information? Hope you can shed some light on this.
Thanks in advance.
