NAME

HTTP::Server::Simple::CGI - CGI.pm-style version of HTTP::Server::Simple

CONTENTS

DESCRIPTION

HTTP::Server::Simple was already simple, but some smart-ass pointed out that there is no CGI in HTTP, and so this module was born to isolate the CGI.pm-related parts of this handler.

    accept_hook

The accept_hook in this sub-class clears the environment to the start-up state.

    post_setup_hook

Initializes the global CGI object, as well as other environment settings.

    cgi_class [Classname]

Gets or sets the class to use for creating the $cgi object passed to handle_request.

Called with a single argument, it sets the coderef. Called with no arguments, it returns this field’s current value.

To provide an initialization subroutine to be run in the post_setup_hook, see cgi_init.

e.g.



    $server->cgi_class(CGI);

    $server->cgi_init(sub {
        require CGI;
        CGI::initialize_globals();
    });



or, if you want to use CGI::Simple,



    $server->cgi_class(CGI::Simple);
    $server->cgi_init(sub {
        require CGI::Simple;
    });



    cgi_init [CODEREF]

A coderef to run in the post_setup_hook.

Called with a single argument, it sets the coderef. Called with no arguments, it returns this field’s current value.

    setup

This method sets up CGI environment variables based on various meta-headers, like the protocol, remote host name, request path, etc.

See the docs in HTTP::Server::Simple for more detail.

    handle_request CGI

This routine is called whenever your server gets a request it can handle.

It’s called with a CGI object that’s been pre-initialized. You want to override this method in your subclass

    handler

Handler implemented as part of HTTP::Server::Simple API
