I just started my first CGI script. Everything was working OK until I came to the part where I had to generate a reference to different CGI (in this case, graph?channel=1&xsize=400&ysize=300
Well, I said, there's this huge (6500 line+) CGI.pm; it must be good for something. So I tried constructing a new CGI object to generate the escaped URL and couldn't find any way to express a different URL (I could change its parameters, but not its address). Hmm... I found the URI module, and it looks like it'll do the job.
But isn't there a clever way to take a base address and a bunch of name=value parameters and come up with a URL within the massive CGI.pm module? I realize I could roll my own with url_escape etc, but this has got to be something that's pretty common. What do you do?
