my $upload = $c->req->upload(field);
To specify where Catalyst should put the temporary files, set the uploadtmp
option in the Catalyst config. If unset, Catalyst will use the system temp dir.
__PACKAGE__->config( uploadtmp => /path/to/tmpdir );
See also Catalyst.
Copies the temporary file using File::Copy. Returns true for success,
false for failure.
Please note the filename used for the copy target is the tempname that
is the actual filename on the filesystem, NOT the filename that was
part of the upload headers. This might seem counter intuitive but at this
point this behavior is so established that its not something we can change.
You can always create your own copy routine that munges the target path
as you wish.
Returns true of the upload defines a character set at that value is UTF-8.
This does not try to inspect your upload and make any guesses if the Content
Type charset is undefined.
Opens a temporary file (see tempname below) and returns an IO::File handle.
This is a filehandle that is opened with no additional IO Layers.
Returns a filehandle that has binmode set to UTF-8 if a UTF-8 character set
is found. This also accepts an override encoding value that you can use to
force a particular PerlIO layer. If neither are found the filehandle is
set to :raw.
This is useful if you are pulling the file into code and inspecting bits and
maybe then sending those bits back as the response. (Please note this is not
a suitable filehandle to set in the body; use fh if you are doing that).
Please note that using this method sets the underlying filehandle IO layer
so once you use this method if you go back and use the fh method you
still get the IO layer applied.
Returns the client-supplied filename.
Returns an HTTP::Headers object for the request.
Creates a hard link to the temporary file. Returns true for success,
false for failure.
Returns the size of the uploaded file in bytes.
Optionally accepts an argument to define an IO Layer (which is applied to
the filehandle via binmode; if no layer is defined the default is set to
Returns a scalar containing the contents of the temporary file.
Note that this will cause the filehandle pointed to by $upload->fh to
be reset to the start of the file using seek and the file handle to be put
into whatever encoding mode is applied.
Works just like slurp except we use decoded_fh instead of fh to
open a filehandle to slurp. This means if your upload charset is UTF8
we binmode the filehandle to that encoding.
Returns basename for filename. This filters the name through a regexp
basename =~ s|[^\w\.-]+|_|g to make it safe for filesystems that dont
like advanced characters. This will of course filter UTF8 characters.
If you need the exact basename unfiltered use raw_basename.
Just like basename but without filtering the filename for characters that
dont always write to a filesystem.
Returns the path to the temporary file.
Returns the client-supplied Content-Type.
The character set information part of the content type, if any. Useful if you
need to figure out any encodings on the file upload.
