NAME
AppConfig::Sys - Perl5 module defining platform-specific information and methods for other AppConfig::* modules. SYNOPSIS
use AppConfig::Sys; my $sys = AppConfig::Sys->new(); @fields = $sys->getpwuid($userid); @fields = $sys->getpwnam($username); OVERVIEW
AppConfig::Sys is a Perl5 module provides platform-specific information and operations as required by other AppConfig::* modules. AppConfig::Sys is distributed as part of the AppConfig bundle. DESCRIPTION
USING THE AppConfig::Sys MODULE To import and use the AppConfig::Sys module the following line should appear in your Perl script: use AppConfig::Sys; AppConfig::Sys is implemented using object-oriented methods. A new AppConfig::Sys object is created and initialised using the AppConfig::Sys->new() method. This returns a reference to a new AppConfig::Sys object. my $sys = AppConfig::Sys->new(); This will attempt to detect your operating system and create a reference to a new AppConfig::Sys object that is applicable to your platform. You may explicitly specify an operating system name to override this automatic detection: $unix_sys = AppConfig::Sys->new("Unix"); Alternatively, the package variable $AppConfig::Sys::OS can be set to an operating system name. The valid operating system names are: Win32, VMS, Mac, OS2 and Unix. They are not case-specific. AppConfig::Sys METHODS AppConfig::Sys defines the following methods: getpwnam() Calls the system function getpwnam() if available and returns the result. Returns undef if not available. The can_getpwnam() method can be called to determine if this function is available. getpwuid() Calls the system function getpwuid() if available and returns the result. Returns undef if not available. The can_getpwuid() method can be called to determine if this function is available. AUTHOR

AppConfig::CGI(3)					User Contributed Perl Documentation					 AppConfig::CGI(3)

NAME
AppConfig::CGI - Perl5 module for processing CGI script parameters. SYNOPSIS
use AppConfig::CGI; my $state = AppConfig::State->new(\%cfg); my $cgi = AppConfig::CGI->new($state); $cgi->parse($cgi_query); $cgi->parse(); # looks for CGI query in environment OVERVIEW
AppConfig::CGI is a Perl5 module which implements a CGI interface to AppConfig. It examines the QUERY_STRING environment variable, or a string passed explicitly by parameter, which represents the additional parameters passed to a CGI query. This is then used to update variable values in an AppConfig::State object accordingly. AppConfig::CGI is distributed as part of the AppConfig bundle. DESCRIPTION
USING THE AppConfig::CGI MODULE To import and use the AppConfig::CGI module the following line should appear in your Perl script: use AppConfig::CGI; AppConfig::CGI is used automatically if you use the AppConfig module and create an AppConfig::CGI object through the cgi() method. AppConfig::CGI is implemented using object-oriented methods. A new AppConfig::CGI object is created and initialised using the new() method. This returns a reference to a new AppConfig::CGI object. A reference to an AppConfig::State object should be passed in as the first parameter: my $state = AppConfig::State->new(); my $cgi = AppConfig::CGI->new($state); This will create and return a reference to a new AppConfig::CGI object. PARSING CGI QUERIES The "parse()" method is used to parse a CGI query which can be specified explicitly, or is automatically extracted from the "QUERY_STRING" CGI environment variable. This currently limits the module to only supporting the GET method. See AppConfig for information about using the AppConfig::CGI module via the cgi() method. AUTHOR
