If I'm right in my guess about what you're trying to do, then the answer is "yes, CGI.pm does do it all for you". That's to say, if you're dealing with form input from a form that has a tag like <INPUT TYPE="FILE" NAME="FILENAME"> then if you do
my $fh = param('FILENAME'); while (<$fh>) { do_stuff_with($_); # manipulate the file line by line }
CGI.pm will deal with the path in the appropriate way - at least, that's been my experience when receiving input from browsers on Windows systems and processing it on a Linux system.

(BTW you might want to use the upload() method, but as this comes only with later versions of CGI.pm I mention the old-fashioned way, in case you are stuck with an annoying ISP.)

CGI.pm does the thinking so you can spend more time drinking beer :)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
