NAME

CGI::BasePlus - HTTP CGI Base Class with Handling of Multipart Forms

DESCRIPTION

This module implements a CGI::BasePlus object that is identical in behavior to CGI::Base except that it provides special handling for postings of MIME type multipart/form-data (which may get very long). In the case of these types of postings, parts that are described as being from a file upload are copied into a temporary file in /usr/tmp, a filehandle is opened on the temporary files, and the name of the filehandle is returned to the caller in the $CGI::Base:QUERY_STRING variable.

Please see CGI::Base for more information.
