This is a very simple Template Toolkit Plugin interface to the CGI module. A CGI object will be instantiated via the following directive:

[% USE CGI %]

CGI methods may then be called as follows:

[% CGI.header %]
[% CGI.param('parameter') %]

An alias can be used to provide an alternate name by which the object should be identified.

[% USE mycgi = CGI %]
[% mycgi.start_form %]
[% mycgi.popup_menu({ Name   => 'Color'
                      Values => [ 'Green' 'Black' 'Brown' ] }) %]

Parenthesised parameters to the USE directive will be passed to the plugin constructor:

[% USE cgiprm = CGI('uid=abw&name=Andy+Wardley') %]
[% cgiprm.param('uid') %]

In addition to all the methods supported by the CGI module, this plugin defines the following.

This method returns a reference to a hash of all the CGI parameters. Any parameters that have multiple values will be returned as lists.

[% USE CGI('user=abw&item=foo&item=bar') %]
[% CGI.params.user %]            # abw
[% CGI.params.item.join(', ') %] # foo, bar
