NAME

XML::CGI - Perl extension for converting CGI.pm variables to/from XML

SYNOPSIS

  use XML::CGI;
  $q = new XML::CGI;

  # convert CGI.pm variables to XML
  $xml = $q->toXML;
  $xml = $q->toXML($root);
  
  # convert XML to CGI.pm variables
  $q->toCGI($xml);

DESCRIPTION

The XML::CGI module converts CGI.pm variables to XML and vice versa.

XML::CGI is a subclass of CGI.pm, so it reads the CGI variables just as CGI.pm would.

METHODS

$q = new XML::CGI

    creates a new instance of XML::CGI. You also have access to all of the methods in CGI.pm.

$q->toXML([$root])

    where $root is an optional parameter that specifies the root element. By default, toXML will not return a root element.

$q->toCGI($xml)

    where $xml is the XML you would like to convert to CGI.pm parameters. Values in the XML will overwrite any existing values if they exist.

NOTE

XML::CGI does not currently handle multiple selections passed from HTML forms. This will be added in a future release.
