...my "home rolled" cgi-parser may not be the best, fastest, most secure function in the world, but it does exactly what i want and tell it do...

Let's go over a few points. I'm not sure you quite understand what your telling CGI.pm:

Rather than bash a module simply because its not doing what you think it should do in this forum, why not just ask the questions, or do some of the research on your own? I'm sure many of us would be glad to answer your questions, and I, for one, would definately suggest that you look into a copy of CGI Programming with Perl.
