NAME

Plack::Request::WithEncoding - Subclass of Plack::Request which supports encoding.

SYNOPSIS

    use Plack::Request::WithEncoding;

    my $app_or_middleware = sub {
        my $env = shift; # PSGI env

        # Example of $env
        #
        # $env = {
        #     QUERY_STRING   => 'query=%82%d9%82%b0', # <= encoded by 'cp932'
        #     REQUEST_METHOD => 'GET',
        #     HTTP_HOST      => 'example.com',
        #     PATH_INFO      => '/foo/bar',
        # };

        my $req = Plack::Request::WithEncoding->new($env);

        $req->env->{'plack.request.withencoding.encoding'} = 'cp932'; # <= specify the encoding method.

        my $query = $req->param('query'); # <= get parameters of 'query' that is decoded by 'cp932'.

        my $res = $req->new_response(200); # new Plack::Response
        $res->finalize;
    };

DESCRIPTION

Plack::Request::WithEncoding is the subclass of Plack::Request. This module supports the encoding for requests, the following attributes will return decoded request values.

Please refer also "SPECIFICATION OF THE ENCODING METHOD".

ATTRIBUTES

  • encoding

    Returns a encoding method to use to decode parameters.

  • query_parameters

    Returns a reference to a hash containing decoded query string (GET) parameters. This hash reference is Hash::MultiValue object.

  • body_parameters

    Returns a reference to a hash containing decoded posted parameters in the request body (POST). As with query_parameters, the hash reference is a Hash::MultiValue object.

  • parameters

    Returns a Hash::MultiValue hash reference containing decoded (and merged) GET and POST parameters.

  • param

    Returns decoded GET and POST parameters with a CGI.pm-compatible param method. This is an alternative method for accessing parameters in $req->parameters. Unlike CGI.pm, it does not allow setting or modifying query parameters.

        $value  = $req->param( 'foo' );
        @values = $req->param( 'foo' );
        @params = $req->param;
  • raw_query_parameters

    This attribute is the same as query_parameters of Plack::Request.

  • raw_body_parameters

    This attribute is the same as body_parameters of Plack::Request.

  • raw_parameters

    This attribute is the same as parameters of Plack::Request.

  • raw_param

    This attribute is the same as param of Plack::Request.

SPECIFICATION OF THE ENCODING METHOD

You can specify the encoding method, like so;

    $req->env->{'plack.request.withencoding.encoding'} = 'utf-7'; # <= set utf-7

And this encoding method will be used to decode.

When not once substituted for $req->env->{'plack.request.withencoding.encoding'}, this module will use "utf-8" as encoding method. However the behavior of a program will become unclear if this function is used. Therefore YOU SHOULD NOT USE THIS. You should specify the encoding method explicitly.

In case of false value (e.g. `undef`, 0, '') is explicitly substituted for $req->env->{'plack.request.withencoding.encoding'}, then this module will return raw value (with no encoding).

The example of a code is shown below.

    print exists $req->env->{'plack.request.withencoding.encoding'} ? 'EXISTS'
                                                                    : 'NOT EXISTS'; # <= NOT EXISTS
    $query = $req->param('query'); # <= get parameters of 'query' that is decoded by 'utf-8' (*** YOU SHOULD NOT USE LIKE THIS ***)

    $req->env->{'plack.request.withencoding.encoding'} = undef; # <= explicitly specify the `undef`
    $query = $req->param('query'); # <= get parameters of 'query' that is not decoded (raw value)

    $req->env->{'plack.request.withencoding.encoding'} = 'cp932'; # <= specify the 'cp932' as encoding method
    $query = $req->param('query'); # <= get parameters of 'query' that is decoded by 'cp932'
