in reply to RFC: CGI::Uploader V 2.90_01


Thanks your interest in this. I'm curious about the decision to move the imaging code into the core. Uploading could be about a lot of other transformations besides image resizing, and the old design of handing image transformations through a helper module seemed like a reasonable interface:


gen_files => { 'my_thumb' => gen_thumb({ w => 100, h => 100 }), }
transform => { imager => Imager -> new(), options => {xpixels => 400, ypixels => 500}, }
That looks worse to me, and sets a precedent for supporting imagers internally, while before there was example of adding new transformers via plugins.

    Hi Mark. Actually, I'm very uneasy about embedding such restricted transformation logic in the module. The feedback has confirmed my suspicions that that part needs to be re-implemented. I was a good idea to call this one 2.90_01 and not 3.00 :-). Cheers
