    You get a 'parameter' called POSTDATA when you have a form with a POST method and the body content is neither "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" or "multipart/form-data".

    CGI introduced this in version 2.92.

    I don't know but you can certainly look this information up yourself. Look where it says Other Releases - You can browse the doc right there, or feel free to D/L what ever version you want to confirm.

    POSTDATA does not appear in the POD of 3.11.
