param function
Message ID:
I have a html form with over 100 fields, is there a quick way to assign them in the way that the scalar name becomes the name of the field and the value of the field is being assigned to that scalar? I know I can just type it one by one:
$name = param('name');
$lastname = param('lastname');
$age = param('age'); ...

, but there must a prettier way to do it:) I was thinking:

@keys = param();
foreach $key (@keys){
    my $value = param($key); 

but that would run through the loop and leave me only with one last pair of retreived $value = "last_field_from_my_form" that I could refer to later in my script. However, I need all of the pairs.

Thanks for help.


PS. By the way, this is a great list, you guys are very helpful and newbies like me really appreciate what you do.
