Description: perl CGI - Simple Common Gateway Interface Class.
 This is CGI.pm, an easy-to-use Perl5 library for writing World Wide
 Web CGI scripts.
 This perl library uses perl5 objects to make it easy to create Web
 fill-out forms and parse their contents. This package defines CGI
 objects, entities that contain the values of the current query string
 and other state variables. Using a CGI object's methods, you can examine
 keywords and parameters passed to your script, and create forms whose
 initial values are taken from the current query (thereby preserving
 state information). The module provides shortcut functions that produce
 boilerplate HTML, reducing typing and coding errors. It also provides
 functionality for some of the more advanced features of CGI scripting,
 including support for file uploads, cookies, cascading style sheets,
 server push, and frames.
Preinst: sh
