This is the code that I usually run whenever I install perl on a new machine or update (I like to have my cake and eat it.)
use CGI; use strict; { my %CGI_Patch; local ($^I, @ARGV) = ('.bak', $INC{''}); while (<>) { s/^(\s*\$POST_MAX\s*=\s*)([^;]*);/${1}1024 * 100;/ && $CGI_Patch{POSTMAX}++; s/^(\s*\$DISABLE_UPLOADS\s*=\s*)([^;]*);/${1}1;/ && $CGI_Patch{NOUPLOADS}++; # I'll have my cake and eat it too!... my $cake = '\$query_string .= \(length\(\$query_string\) +'. '\? \'&\' : \'\'\) . \$ENV{\'QUERY_STRING\'}'. ' if defined \$ENV{\'QUERY_STRING\'};'; s/(\s*)#(\s*)($cake)/$1$2$3/ && $CGI_Patch{CAKE}++; print; close ARGV if eof; } print " ($INC{''}) patch results...\n"; print '$POSTMAX updated...........' , $CGI_Patch{POSTMAX} , "\n"; print '$DISABLE_UPLOADS updated...' , $CGI_Patch{NOUPLOADS} , "\n" +; print 'Have your cake and eat it..' , $CGI_Patch{CAKE} , "\n"; }
Admittedly, this code is likely to break when CGI changes dramatically, so it's not as robust as CGI::Safe. I like to edit the source, so I make sure that everyone else's code on the server is a bit more secure.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
