MARKSTOS / HTML-FillInForm-2.20 / Changes

2.20 - August 10th, 2013

    - Updated to support HTML5 (RT #75933, thanks to charsbar)

2.11 - June 3rd, 2013

Updated tests so that they pass with Perl 5.18 (Mark Stosberg)

2.1 - August 29th, 2011

Fixed disable_fields option (#52667 Dirk Braun, Goro Fuji)

Add an option to clear absent checkboxes (#44101 Alex Kapranoff)

Fix incorrectly multiple escaped data in list context (#34081 Miika Pekkarinen)

Allow FIF to process the new <input> field  types (URL, email, and number) as defined in the HTML5 draft and already implemented by the iPhone.
(Michael Fisher)

Allow alternate parsing class (Mark Stosberg)

mark invalid fields (Sam Tregar)

2.0 - September 11th, 2007

Allow passing an arrayref of hashrefs through fdat (Mark Stosberg, Michael Graham)

Several new shortcuts: (Mark Stosberg)
    Allow calling fill() as a class method as a shortcut.
    Allow   \$html  as shortcut for   scalarref => \$html
    Allow   \@html  as shortcut for   arrayref  => \@html
    Allow   \*html  as shortcut for   file      => \*html
    Allow   'html'  as shortcut for   file      => 'html'
    Allow   $q      as shortcut for   fobject   => $q
    Allow  \%fdat   as shortcut for   fdat      => \%fdat

    In summary, instead of this:

    my $fif = HTML::FillInForm->new;
    $fif->fill( scalarref => \$html, fdat => \%data );

    You can simply write:

    HTML::FillInForm->fill( \$html, \%data );
