NAME
CGI::PSGI - Adapt CGI.pm to the PSGI protocol
SYNOPSIS
use CGI::PSGI;
my $app = sub {
my $env = shift;
my $q = CGI::PSGI->new($env);
return [ $q->psgi_header, [ $body ] ];
};
DESCRIPTION
This module is for web application framework developers who currently
uses CGI to handle query parameters, and would like for the frameworks
to comply with the PSGI protocol.
Only slight modifications should be required if the framework is already
collecting the body content to print to STDOUT at one place (rather
using the print-as-you-go approach).
On the other hand, if you are an "end user" of CGI.pm and have a CGI
script that you want to run under PSGI web servers, this module might
not be what you want. Take a look at CGI::Emulate::PSGI instead.
Your application, typically the web application framework adapter should
update the code to do "CGI::PSGI->new($env)" instead of "CGI->new" to
create a new CGI object. (This is similar to how CGI::Fast object is
initialized in a FastCGI environment.)
INTERFACES SUPPORTED
Only the object-oriented interface of CGI.pm is supported through
CGI::PSGI. This means you should always create an object with
"CGI::PSGI->new($env)" and should call methods on the object.
The function-based interface like "use CGI ':standard'" does not work
with this module.
METHODS
CGI::PSGI adds the following extra methods to CGI.pm:
env
$env = $cgi->env;
Returns the PSGI environment in a hash reference. This allows
CGI.pm-based application frameworks such as CGI::Application to access
PSGI extensions, typically set by Plack Middleware components.
So if you enable Plack::Middleware::Session, your application and plugin
developers can access the session via:
$cgi->env->{'plack.session'}->get("foo");
Of course this should be coded carefully by checking the existence of
"env" method as well as the hash key "plack.session".
psgi_header
my ($status_code, $headers_aref) = $cgi->psgi_header(%args);
Works like CGI.pm's header(), but the return format is modified. It
returns an array with the status code and arrayref of header pairs that
PSGI requires.
If your application doesn't use "$cgi->header", you can ignore this
method and generate the status code and headers arrayref another way.
psgi_redirect
my ($status_code, $headers_aref) = $cgi->psgi_redirect(%args);
Works like CGI.pm's redirect(), but the return format is modified. It
returns an array with the status code and arrayref of header pairs that
PSGI requires.
If your application doesn't use "$cgi->redirect", you can ignore this
method and generate the status code and headers arrayref another way.
