Perl: Reading POST Form Actions

July 24 2014

Hosts: Fr. Robert Ballecer, SJ and Shannon Morse

Guest: Patrick Delahanty

The Code for today's show is available at our: Github

Ivory Tower

Let's play with some POST!

Last week we used the "GET" method within the HTML "FORM" tag to get information from the browser.

<FORM METHOD=GET ACTION="../cgi-bin/animal_name.pl">

<h2>Would you care to name this creature?</h2><br>

<INPUT NAME="NameOfCreature"><br>
<INPUT TYPE=SUBMIT>

* If we type "My Dog" into the field and click Submit, it will create a URL that calls the script "animal_name.pl" and passes it the value "My+Dog"

* The resulting URL would read:
cgi-bin/bunny.pl?NameOfCreature=My+Dog

Now we're going to use "POST"
* While "GET" was fine for little pieces of data entry from the user, "POST" is the prefered methos for sending longer strings and combinations of HTML FORM data.
- Unlike GET, POST requests have no restruction on data length.

POST is NOT secure, but it DOES have a few security advantages to GET
* GET requests remain in the browser history, CAN be cached and can be bookmarked.
* POST requests are NOT retained the browser history, nor are they cacheable or bookmarkable.
