in reply to cgi and upload_hook

"if i could have access to the form name that contained the file the hook is currently running against, i'd be happy. (in this case that would be "myFile")"

I'm not sure if I understand your question but you cannot access the form name. On the other side, you can read it from an hidden field:

<input type='hidden' name='FormName' value='MyFile' />

    not the form name, the form field name. when hook get's called it get's passed a filename, which is the value of that form field (the input box) - i want the *name* of the field (not the value) that hook is running against.

      If you have this in your form:
      <input type="file" name="myFile">
      the form field name, the one that holds the file you're uploading, is.... 'myFile'.
      You can access it with:
      my $var = $cgi->param("myFile");
        I vaguely offended by your response sir. I know how to use CGI well enough. The trouble is it's not set up in a way that will allow me to use it as I like (ie, access already parsed post variables in an upload_hook call)

        please read the demo again, i suppose i'm looking for workarounds or ideas for patching/hacking CGI.pm
