I have no idea what you're talking about. CGI.pm has been the standard perl CGI module for years. Nobody uses anything else.

Besides, less people are using CGI anyway. Most likely you're not using PHP for CGI, but you don't even know it.

    Yes, there are some people who do use something other than CGI.pm though I will give you that most perl programmers working with cgi do use CGI.pm.
    CGI.pm is just way too bloated for my personal tastes, so I wrote my own which is very compact, extremely quick (especially in comparison to CGI.pm), and has just the data retrieval and parsing subroutines I want (which is what most perl programmers use CGI.pm for anyway). It does both get and post with mime support, and is compatible with both windows and linux. Havenít really tested it else ware.
