in reply to CGI form results to XML

Now, please! donít do this directly. The Vars() thing is a back-compat shim to perl4 days and you should always white-list and filter your user input, not blanket echo. But you can experiment with thisĖ

use strict; use warnings; use CGI::Pretty ":standard"; use XML::Simple; if ( my %params = CGI::Vars() ) { $_ = [ split /\0/ ] for values %params; print header("application/xml"), XMLout(\%params); } else { print header(), start_html(), h1("OHAI: I CAN HAZ HTML FORMZ?"), start_form(); print p(textfield("birthday")) for 1 .. 5; print end_form(), end_html(); } __END__ perl pm-1019080 'birthday=1:356;birthday=2:365' Content-Type: application/xml; charset=ISO-8859-1 <opt> <birthday>1:356</birthday> <birthday>2:365</birthday> </opt>

You can replace CGI::Pretty with CGI. Itís just nicer to inspect with Pretty.
