NAME

Template::Plugin::CGI - Interface to the CGI module

CONTENTS

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
