Hello, Hi monks, I read the CGI.pm: ' http://search.cpan.org/~lds/CGI.pm-3.43/CGI.pm#USING_THE_FUNCTION-ORIENTED_INTERFACE', and then try to use function-oriented interface to run the cgi example as the manual shows, the 'error.log' shows 'root@Sparta:/var/www/cgi-bin# tail -f /var/log/apache2/error.log CGI::param called in list context from /var/www/cgi-bin/test.cgi line +22, this can lead to vulnerabilities. See the warning in "Fetching th +e value or values of a single named parameter" at /usr/local/share/pe +rl/5.18.2/CGI.pm line 404.' I ask as perlmonks, and it should use multi_param() or scalar param(), because the example return list context. It will make the reader no confused. Thanks, Phillip
