don't know what the HTTP RFC says, but I guess it wouldn't matter, since Netscape's has to be the de-facto standard.

The RFC says that allowing a redirect to a POST is unsafe and that clients shouldn't do it. To do so is evil and guaranteed to act weird with all browsers. Some will convert to GET style and happily send your data to the error page you got because the CGI is broken. Others ask and some fail silently.

I think that you will find people rather unhappy with you offering to break compliance with a standard. Make sure the patch you offer is both optional and defaults to off.

Sarcasm about Netscape being "standard" removed before posting =) =)

honk() if $you->love(perl)
