Cgi.pm process POST & GET - PERL Miscellaneous

Hello, I am writing an application which passes a session id around on the querystring. This works fine until I submit a form, at which point the current session is dropped and a new one is created. I presume this is because CGI.pm only processes the POST data and not the query string when its gets a POST request. Is there any way of forcing CGI.pm to always process the query string?. -- Thanks, Matt...

    Default Cgi.pm process POST & GET

    Hello,

    I am writing an application which passes a session id
    around on the querystring. This works fine until I submit
    a form, at which point the current session is dropped and a
    new one is created.

    I presume this is because CGI.pm only processes the POST data
    and not the query string when its gets a POST request. Is there any
    way of forcing CGI.pm to always process the query string?.

    "perldoc CGI" explains how to do that, it's under the
    headline "MIXING POST AND URL PARAMETERS". The
    short answer is: use url_param() instead of param()
    to read the parameters given via GET in a mixed
    request. But plz read the docs as well :)
