CGI Contrib Package

CGI version 4.13 from CPAN:CGI


This contrib does not add any features to TWiki. Its purpose is to convert Perl's CGI module from being an external dependency to a component of TWiki.

Detailed Documentation

This is the stub module of CgiContrib. Its only purpose is to expose the version number of CGI under its expected package name, so that the TWiki dependency checking mechanism will find it.


  • Set SHORTDESCRIPTION = CGI version 4.13 from CPAN:CGI

Installation Instructions

This contrib ships with TWiki (versions 6.0.2 or newer). You should only consider installing it yourself if 1) you experience problems with CGI in your installation, and 2) installing or upgrading this is recommended by the TWiki community as a fix for your problems.

You do not need to install anything on the browser to use this contrib package. These instructions are for the administrator who installs the package on the server where TWiki is running.
