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

[Corion]: Hi marto!
[Corion]: The fun show at $work continues, as The Big Project is now in its second week of frantic live-bugfixing and weekend releases where nobody knows what went live. Nothing has been tested anyway.

Corion watches from the sidelines. Or rather, from behind, as my system only gets output from that process and my programs adhere strictly to the GIGO design principle.
[erix]: ah, that's nice to hear Corion :)
[Corion]: erix: Yeah, the sad thing is that all I can do is document things, so I can point fingers when the auditors come :-/
[Corion]: "I'm here to open tickets and point fingers. And I'm all out of tickets."
[erix]: didn't Sybase have pretty good auditing? :) (this is a vague memory)
[erix]: (culprits often are upstream of db of course)
