Using cgi-lib.pl is something that its *author* strongly
discourages.  cgi.pm is a replacement, not an alternative.

The older library is insecure, burns memory and (on my
server OS at least) doesn't support POST as a method at
all.  Avoid.


Thanks for the heads up John. I've never used the cgi-lib.pl or
even looked into it that thoroughly.
