in reply to reading dynamic form params

Tested and works but there's probably a better solution.
my @names = param(); my %data; foreach my $name (@names) { next if ($name =~ m/SubmitButtonName/); $data{$name} = param($name);; } foreach my $key (keys %data) { print "$key => $data{$key}<br>\n"; } # all goodies are in %data
UPDATE: I decided to go ahead and try to load the hash to the param directly thinking perhaps there's a chance, but it failed. It stored just the params and not the values.
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use CGI qw/:standard/; use CGI::Carp 'fatalsToBrowser'; print header, start_html; my %data = param(); foreach my $key (keys %data) { print "$key => $data{$key}<br>\n"; }
