in reply to Re: allowing form uploading
in thread allowing form uploading

It pained me to -- such a helpful (in spirit at any rate) node, but
(A) in general I think it's a bad idea to encourage use of cgi-lib.pl instead of CGI.pm for all kinds of reasons including code re-use and long term optimisation for developer time;
(B) I don't like solutions that aim to avoid using modules - mostly because I myself got burned by lazily pursuing such solutions, so I have the zeal of the reformed;
(C) Even if, which I don't believe, there was a good reason for resisting *new* modules in the script, sulfericacid is already using CGI.pm, and it's super-perverse to *replace* it with cgi-lib.
