NAME

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

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
