Bugzilla::CGI - CGI handling for Bugzilla
use Bugzilla::CGI; my $cgi = new Bugzilla::CGI();
This package inherits from the standard CGI module, to provide additional Bugzilla-specific functionality. In general, see the CGI.pm docs for documention.
Bugzilla::CGI has some differences from CGI.pm.
cgi_erroris automatically checked
After creating the CGI object,
Bugzilla::CGI automatically checks cgi_error, and throws a CodeError if a problem is detected.
Bugzilla::CGI also includes additional functions.
This returns a sorted string of the parameters, suitable for use in a url. Values in
@exclude are not included in the result.
This routine is identical to the cookie generation part of CGI.pm's
cookie routine, except that it knows about Bugzilla's cookie_path and cookie_domain parameters and takes them into account if necessary. This should be used by all Bugzilla code (instead of
cookie or the
-cookie argument to
header), so that under mod_perl the headers can be sent correctly, using
To remove (expire) a cookie, use
This is a wrapper around send_cookie, setting an expiry date in the past, effectively removing the cookie.
As its only argument, it takes the name of the cookie to expire.
This routine checks if the current page is being served over https, and redirects to the https protocol if required, retaining QUERY_STRING.
It takes an option argument which will be used as the base URL. If $baseurl is not provided, the current URL is used.
Redirects from the current URL to one prefixed by the urlbase parameter.
