in reply to Training wheels again

I wouldn't be surprized if the hitcount went higher the less junk and whatnot gets loaded before we can actually get to do anything. I mean, CGI.pm is known to be a big huge beast of code. There's CGI-lite.pm, but even better is a short handler that goes through the GET or POST method and gets the goods directly instead of fifty(exageration) levels of abstraction.

Call me a hard-core purist. :)

    I just stumbled across these modules yesterday. I haven't tried them yet, but they seem to be what you're looking for.

    CGI::Deurl.pm and CGI::Enurl.pm This is a little module made for CGI scripting. It decodes the parameters passed to the CGI or an arbitrary URL encoded string. It does nothing more, so it's much smaller and loads more quickly than CGI.pm.

      Yeah, but how about a "built-in" parser? I did that for the American Geophysical Union a few years ago, reusing some old code.
