Subject: Multipart Data in CGI->new($data)
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 281b
CGI does not support the input of Multipart data when created as a new Object with that data as the input. (i.e. <STDIN> has been read into $buffer where <STDIN> is the response from a Multipart form, the data is then passed to CGI via CGI->new ($buffer)). Thanks, James Austin

It's an interesting idea, but I'm rejecting it now for a few reasons: - It's a not a bug-- the docs don't suggest we support this - There's no email to follow-up with the reporter. - No one else has followed up to support the idea since 2006 - There are reasonable alternatives now to accomplish the same goal, such as using HTTP::Request::AsCGI.
