Problem with POST data

rayamr has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi, The POST data is not getting into the processing script and the only change that has been done on the servers are they have been upgraded to Perl version 5.22. The CGI params function is returning empty parameter fields when I send data through POST method. Is there any known issue in CGI with Perl 5.22 or anything related to processing POST data ?

    Can you show us a short HTML example and a short Perl program that exhibits the problem? I have not encountered problems with POST data, CGI and Perl.

    Also tell us what webserver you are using and whether you're talking about the module or the Common Gateway Interface.

    Also maybe read the documentation on mixing POST and GET parameters. This describes a problem in the other direction, GET parameters getting shadowed by POST parameters, but maybe that helps you find the real error cause.

    Is CGI installed? It was removed from the core in 5.22
