( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I was wondering if anyone had any experience with CGI::Minimal. I have been using it as a light-weight alternative to to retrieve form data (I do not need HTML generating capabilities of since using templates is a more maintainable solution in most cases anyway).

I've been trying to get CGI::Minimal to work with file-upload forms, but it does not seem to work at all. As soon as I add enctype="multipart/form-data" to my form tag, my script that uses CGI::Minimal never finishes. I know the problem is in CGI::Minimal, because and direct read from STDIN work just fine. I've searched newsgroups for any clues, and I am somewhat surprised that no one had ever noticed that CGI::Minimal does not work for form-based file uploads, even though it claims to.

Do you think CGI::Minimal is buggy, or could it be something else? I would appreciate any hints.

Thank you,

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
