Subject Re: EMBPERL: accepting json
Date Thu, 08 Sep 2016 17:04:54 GMT
I agree with all of the responses that Embed perl was made to mainly use 
CGI.pm and multipart/form-data and really shouldn't be used outside of that.

BUT As long as there is possibility that it might be able to receive 
application/json data I have to look for a way to do it. It's part of my 
job to look for solutions that work within current limitations.

If every response to this email is "It's not possible" that is something 
I can take to a meeting.  If the responses are "You shouldn't or it's 
difficult" then I have to keep searching for a solution that is 
understandable and workable.

I'm willing to pay a small consulting fee or a donation to a charity, 
for assistance in figuring this out.

So what are the suggestions for handling a call like this on a script by 
script basis.  I might be possible to limit the scripts accepting these 
calls to specific directories.

|varformData 
={"data1":a,"data2":b,"data3":c};$.ajax({dataType:"json",contentType 
:"application/json; charset=UTF-8",url:'/folder1/doSomething1.epl',data 
:formData,success:function(response){CurrentArray=response;}}); Thank 
You, ~Donavon |
