Subject CGI.pm - Unnamed parameter
Date Fri, 02 Nov 2001 01:42:13 GMT
Hi,

Hopefully a quick and easy question...

I'm accessing as follows:

/cgi-bin/script.pl?data

And want to know how to get 'data' from somewhere using CGI.pm

Am familiar with using $cgi->param{'it'} to read .../script.pl?it=data
and also using $cgi->path_info() to read .../script.pl/data
but I don't know how to get at it using the format at the top. I've
noticed from experiment that given /script.pl?data, I seem to be
able to get it using $cgi->param{'keywords'}, but if I am using
.../script.pl?param=value&data then I can access 'value' from
$cgi->param{'param'}, but can no longer get 'data' from 
$cgi->param{'keywords'}

I'm therefore obviously concerned about just asssuming that
$cgi->param{'keywords'} will return 'data' given an access of
.../script.pl?data as I can find no reference in CGI.pm docs
about this being a standard behaviour.

Does anyone know a fail-safe way of retrieving 'data'
using a CGI.pm call given an access as above ???

Thanks,

James
