in reply to Sending variables to subs

Another way to easily access form parameters when using is to use import_names.

For example:
.... use CGI; my $q = new CGI; $q->import_names('Q'); .... inerror("we couldn't find $Q::home, please check path");

From "perldoc CGI":
IMPORTING ALL PARAMETERS INTO A NAMESPACE: $query->import_names('R'); This creates a series of variables in the 'R' namespace. For example, $R::foo, @R:foo. For keyword lists, a vari­ able @R::keywords will appear. If no namespace is given, this method will assume 'Q'. WARNING: don't import any­ thing into 'main'; this is a major security risk!!!! In older versions, this method was called import(). As of version 2.20, this name has been removed completely to avoid conflict with the built-in Perl module import opera­ tor.
