NAME

CGI::Untaint::Maypole - Use instead of CGI::Untaint. Based on CGI::Untaint

SYNOPSIS

  use CGI::Untaint::Maypole;
  my $h = CGI::Untaint::Maypole->new($params);
  $value = $h->extract(-as_printable => 'name);

  if ($h->error =~ /No input for/) {
        # caught empty input now handle it
                ....
  }
  if ($h->raw_data->{$field} eq $object->$field) {
    # Raw data same as database data. Perhaps we should not update field
        ...
  }

DESCRIPTION

This patches some issues I have with CGI::Untaint. You still need it installed and you install handlers the same.

1) Instead of passing the empty string to the untaint handlers and relying on them to handle it to everyone's liking, it seems better to have CGI::Untaint just say "No input for field" if the field is blank.

2) It adds the method raw_data to the get back the parameters the handler was created with.

raw_data

Returns the parameters the handler was created with as a hashref
