NAME ^

Template::Plugin::CGI - simple Template Plugin interface to CGI.pm module

SYNOPSIS ^

    [% USE CGI %]
    [% CGI.param('parameter') %]

    [% USE things = CGI %]
    [% things.param('name') %]
    
    # see CGI docs for other methods provided by the CGI object

DESCRIPTION ^

This is a very simple Template Toolkit Plugin interface to the CGI module. A CGI object will be instantiated via the following directive:

    [% USE CGI %]

CGI methods may then be called as follows:

    [% CGI.header %]
    [% CGI.param('parameter') %]

An alias can be used to provide an alternate name by which the object should be identified.

    [% USE mycgi = CGI %]
    [% mycgi.start_form %]
    [% mycgi.popup_menu({ Name   => 'Color'
                          Values => [ 'Green' 'Black' 'Brown' ] }) %]

Parenthesised parameters to the USE directive will be passed to the plugin constructor:

    [% USE cgiprm = CGI('uid=abw&name=Andy+Wardley') %]
    [% cgiprm.param('uid') %]
