in reply to Re^2: cgi and upload_hook
in thread cgi and upload_hook

not the form name, the form field name
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
