NAME ^

Template::Plugin::CGI - Interface to the CGI 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') %]

METHODS ^

In addition to all the methods supported by the CGI module, this plugin defines the following.

params()

This method returns a reference to a hash of all the CGI parameters. Any parameters that have multiple values will be returned as lists.

    [% USE CGI('user=abw&item=foo&item=bar') %]
    [% CGI.params.user %]            # abw
    [% CGI.params.item.join(', ') %] # foo, bar
