Hello, I found a issue which may be a trap for users havin rewrites on the webserver. CGI::Simple does not use environment SCRIPT_URI or REQUEST_URI for the creation of content of method url(). That differs from CGI.pm, but is unfortunately not mentioned in perldoc. CGI.pm uses the URI sent to browser [i.e. request_uri()] which is a practical use if the server uses rewrites access to script. CGI::Simple uses script_name() which leads to problems if a internal rewrite occurs. Would be nice to get a patch to be compatible to CGI.pm behavior. CGI.pm uses (https://metacpan.org/source/LEEJO/CGI-4.40/lib/CGI.pm#L2695)
