in thread Building data structures from CGI params

I like that better than expecting a ->param, since that breaks it away from the contract of purely hash->hash.

Adding a branch breaks no contracts

sub build_cgi_struct { my ($iv, $errs, $conf) = @_; use Scalar::Util qw(blessed); my $blessed = blessed $iv; my $splitnull = 1; if( $blessed and UNIVERSAL::can( $iv, 'param') ){ $splitnull = 0; if( $iv->isa('CGI') ){ $iv = $iv->{"param"} ; # cheat :) } else { $iv = { map { $_ => [ $iv->param($_) ] } $iv->param }; } } ... ... if $splitnull;
