Thanks for explaining this here. Is it documented anywhere? I have been chewing on CGI and the POSTDATA parameter for the last day, only to find out that the documentation is out-of-date.
From the documentation on CPAN and perldoc:
If POSTed data is not of type application/x-www-form-urlencoded or multipart/form-data, then the POSTed data will not be processed, but instead be returned as-is in a parameter named POSTDATA.
(If you don't know what the preceding means, don't worry about it. It only affects people trying to use CGI for XML processing and other specialized tasks.)
So, me, thinking I am using CGI for XML processing... Only after having it print out everything it's got, I find a param('XForms:Model') - I can't find anything about that on CPAN or perldoc for CGI though!
Can someone update the doc or should I file a bug-report on CPAN?
