# Overriden and new methods follow here...

DESCRIPTION

This is a subclass of DBIx::HTMLView to create cgi interfaces.

METHODS

$v=new DBIx::HTMLView::CGIView($db,$fmt);

Creates a new CGIView object passing $db and $fmt to the DBIx::HTMLView constructor. It will also take care of the CGI input and place the key/value pairs in a hash in $v->{'Form'}, and call the $v->Head method to generate the headder.

$v->Head

Prints the page headder to stdout. The idea is to override this method if you want to chnage the headder.

$v->Foot

Prints the page footer to stdout. The idea is to override this method if you want to chnage the footer.
