Summary: Handle Common Gateway Interface requests and responses is a stable, complete and mature solution for processing and
preparing HTTP requests and responses. Major features including processing
form submissions, file uploads, reading and writing cookies, query string
generation and manipulation, and processing and preparing HTTP headers. performs very well in a vanilla environment and also comes
with built-in support for mod_perl and mod_perl2 as well as FastCGI.

It has the benefit of having developed and refined over 20 years with input
from dozens of contributors and being deployed on thousands of websites. was included in the perl distribution from perl v5.4 to v5.20,

      [ INTERNALS ]
    - The MultipartBuffer package has been renamed to CGI::MultipartBuffer.
      This has been done in a way to ensure any $MultipartBuffer package
      variables are still set correctly in CGI::MultipartBuffer. if you are
      explicitly using MultipartBuffer in a form such as:
      your code will break. you should be calling:
      CGI->new->new_MultipartBuffer( $boundary,$length );
      to ensure the correctly package is called. if you are extending the
      MultipartBuffer package though use of ISA or base (or parent) then you
      will need to update your code to use CGI::MultipartBuffer

  - Removed some old stuff needed to build on older distributions

  - fixed build-dependencies
  - updated to 4.14
    - This release removes the AUTOLOAD and compile optimisations from
      that were introduced into twenty (20) years ago as a response to
      its large size, which meant there was a significant compile time penalty.
    - This optimisation is no longer relevant and makes the code difficult to
      deal with as well as making test coverage metrics incorrect. Benchmarks
      show that advantages of AUTOLOAD / lazy loading / deferred compile are
      less than 0.05s, which will be dwarfed by just about any meaningful code
      in a cgi script. If this is an issue for you then you should look at
      running in a persistent environment (FCGI, etc)
    - To offset some of the time added by removing the AUTOLOAD functionality
      the dependencies have been made runtime rather than compile time. The
      POD has also been split into its own file. now contains around
      4000 lines of code, which compared to some modules on CPAN isn't really
      that much
    - This essentially deprecates the -compile pragma and ->compile method. The
    - compile pragma will no longer do anything, whereas the ->compile method
      will raise a deprecation warning. More importantly this also REMOVES the
    - any pragma because as per the documentation this pragma needed to be
      "used with care or not at all" and allowing arbitrary HTML tags is almost
      certainly a bad idea. If you are using the -any pragma and using arbitrary
      tags (or have typo's in your code) your code will *BREAK*
    - Although this release should be back compatible (with the exception of any
      code using the -any pragma) you are encouraged to test it throughly as if
      you are doing anything out of the ordinary with (i.e. have bugs
      that may have been masked by the AUTOLOAD feature) you may see some issues.
    - References: GH #162, GH #137, GH #164
  - updated to 4.13
    - CGI::Pretty is now DEPRECATED and will be removed in a future release.
      Please see GH #162 ( for more
      information and discussion (also GH #140 for HTML function deprecation

  - version 4.12 has not been released

  - updated to 4.11
    4.11 2014-12-02
      [ SPEC / BUG FIXES ]
    - more hash key ordering bugs fixed in HTML attribute output (GH #158,
      thanks to Marcus Meissner for the patch and test case)
    - escapeHTML (and unescapeHTML) have been refactored to use the functions
      exported by the HTML::Entities module (GH #157)
    - change BUILD_REQUIRES to TEST_REQUIRES in Makefile.PL as these are test
      dependencies not build dependencies (GH #159)
    - replace any remaining uses of indirect object notation (new Object) with
      the safer Object->new syntax (GH #156)
    4.10 2014-11-27
      [ SPEC / BUG FIXES ]
    - favour -content-type arg in header if -type and -charset options are also
      passed in (GH #155, thanks to kaoru for the test case). this change also
      sorts the hash keys in the rearrange method in CGI::Util meaning the order
      of the arrangement will always be the same for params that have multiple
      aliases. really you shouldn't be passing in multiple aliases, but this will
      make it consistent should you do that
    - fix some typos

      handling in See "Changes in temporary file handling" in perldoc

      "Fetching the value or values of a single named parameter" for why
      this has been added and how to disable this warning

    - this release removes some long deprecated modules/functions and
      includes refactoring to the temporary file handling in if

      files you should test your code before deploying this update as
