in reply to CGI form results to XML

I just wanted to say that it is not guaranteed (AFAIK) that the web browser sends the form fields in the same order as enumerated in the html, or that they even send all of them (when one is unset). That is, you probably can't match a name and a birth date together. You should give the text boxes different names, grouping by entry. HTML::FormFu, particularly HTML::FormFu::Element::Repeatable might help there. (It's a pretty difficult/boring job to do it manually.)

    Iíll be damned, RFC 2388 seems to agree that itís not guaranteed, because itís left unspecified. Surprising. I do a lot of form introspection and simple CGI::Dump -> email kinds of stuff and I have never noticed any browser sending the fields back in any order other than that of the fields in the page.

[marto]: what a mess
[karlgoethebier]: perhaps i need a zerial?
[Corion]: marto: Heh - I think that's a nice contractual trap, "you will not use other gods/engines besides ours" ;)
[Corion]: But if the base intention was to have CIG as "co-developers" who (have to) contribute changes back to the mainline, it makes sense to have them use no other engine
[marto]: yes, I hear that development house has been on its last legs for a couple of years now
[Corion]: Is anybody aware of what makes Android Oreo better than Android Nougat? I'm not sure if the architectural changes (etc) are there already that make upgrading an Oreo-kernel phone to a newer Android userland (Lineage OS) version feasible
[Corion]: Yeah, CryTek got blindsided (or whatever) by Unity and Unreal Engine being zero cost, and the CryTek documentation being bad/nonexistent I think
[Corion]: "zero monetary cost", because of course, it's gratis only if your time has no value :)
[marto]: I used to keep up to date with my android ROMs, updating to the nightly every other day
