Subject: Feature request: param to be lvalue sub

CGI.pm lets you set a parameter value as param('p', $v); It would be slightly nicer if you could say param('p') = $v;

Thanks for the suggestion. However, no new features are being added now unless they seem essential to the life of the module. ( It may be updated to deal with new standards, environment changes, and compatibility with new versions of Perl. ) Mark

OK, having though about this i'm going to reject on the grounds that CGI.pm already has two ways to interface with it, pure procedural and OO, and adding a third way is probably not a good idea. I can see how lvalue subs could be useful, but not at with CGI.pm at this stage. Thanks for the suggestion though.
