NAME

HTTP::Request::Params - Retrieve GET/POST Parameters from HTTP Requests

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  use HTTP::Request::Params;
 
  my $http_request = read_request();
  my $parse_params = HTTP::Request::Params->new({
                       req => $http_request,
                     });
  my $params       = $parse_params->params;



DESCRIPTION

This software does all the dirty work of parsing HTTP Requests to find incoming query parameters.

    new



  my $parser = HTTP::Request::Params->new({
                  req => $http_request,
               });



req - This required argument is either an HTTP::Request object or a string containing an entier HTTP Request.

Incoming query parameters come from two places. The first place is the query portion of the URL. Second is the content portion of an HTTP request as is the case when parsing a POST request, for example.

    params



  my $params = $parser->params;



Returns a hash reference containing all the parameters. The keys in this hash are the names of the parameters. Values are the values associated with those parameters in the incoming query. For parameters with multiple values, the value in this hash will be a list reference. This is the same behaviour as the CGI module’s Vars() function.

    req



  my $req_object = $parser->req;



Returns the HTTP::Request object.

    mime



  my $mime_object = $parser->mime;



Returns the Email::MIME object.

Now, you may be wondering why we’re dealing with an Email::MIME object. The answer is simple. It’s an amazing parser for MIME compliant messages, and RFC 822 compliant messages. When parsing incoming POST data, especially file uploads, Email::MIME is the perfect fit. It’s fast and light.
