NAME

CGI::Struct::XS - Build structures from CGI data. Fast.

DESCRIPTION

This module is XS implementation of CGI::Struct. It's fully compatible with CGI::Struct, except for error messages. CGI::Struct::XS is 3-15 (5-25 with dclone disabled) times faster than original module.

SYNOPSIS

  use CGI;
  use CGI::Struct::XS;
  my $cgi = CGI->new;
  my %params = $cgi->Vars;
  my $struct = build_cgi_struct \%params;
  ...

Or

  use Plack::Request;
  use CGI::Struct::XS;

  my $app_or_middleware = sub {
      my $env = shift; # PSGI env
      my $req = Plack::Request->new($env);
      my $errs = [];
      my $struct = build_cgi_struct $req->parameters, $errs, { dclone => 0 };
      ...
  }

FUNCTIONS

build_cgi_struct

  $struct = build_cgi_struct \%params;
  
  $struct = build_cgi_struct \%params, \@errs;
   
  $struct = build_cgi_struct \%params, \@errs, \%conf;

The only exported function is build_cgi_struct. It has three arguments:

\%params

HashRef with input values. Typicaly this is CGI or Plack params hashref

\@errs

ArrayRef to store error messages. If it's not defined all parsing errors will be sielently discarded.

\%conf

HashRef with parsing optiosn

Following options are supported:

nodot

Treat dot as ordinary character, not hash delimeter

nullsplit

Split input values by \\0 characeter, usefull for old CGI libraries

dclone

Store deep clone of value, instead of original value. This opion increase memory consumsion and slows parsing. It's recomended to disable dclone, because in most cases CGI params are used as read-only variables.
