Just as an FYI, HTM::Mason does provide access to the CGI.pm.
in reply to Re: use CGI or die;
in thread use CGI or die;
You are advised to not access the structure directly, even
though you can. Mason provides access through object
Also, you are able to take advantage of the HTML constructs
as documented in the Mason FAQ here
I'm inclined to believe that using the CGI constructs is
probably a "good thing" as you get the side benefit,
as merlyn states: Re: Re: use CGI or die;, of CGI.pm spitting out XHTML.
