XML::CGI - Perl extension for converting CGI.pm variables to/from XML
use XML::CGI; $q = new XML::CGI; # convert CGI.pm variables to XML $xml = $q->toXML; $xml = $q->toXML($root); # convert XML to CGI.pm variables $q->toCGI($xml);
The XML::CGI module converts CGI.pm variables to XML and vice versa.
XML::CGI is a subclass of CGI.pm, so it reads the CGI variables just as CGI.pm would.
creates a new instance of XML::CGI. You also have access to all of the methods in CGI.pm.
where $root is an optional parameter that specifies the root element. By default, toXML will not return a root element.
where $xml is the XML you would like to convert to CGI.pm parameters. Values in the XML will overwrite any existing values if they exist.
XML::CGI does not currently handle multiple selections passed from HTML forms. This will be added in a future release.
