Jifty::Web::FileUpload(3) Describes an HTTP file upload


Currently this module is very much geared towards the use case of the current request offering a file upload, and inspecting CGI to produce metadata.

Refactorings to eliminate these assumptions are very welcome.


Creates a new file upload object. The possible arguments in the "PARAMHASH" are:
The filehandle to read the content from. If this is not an Fh object produced by CGI, then "content_type" is mandatory and you probably want to set "filename" yourself.
content (optional)
The upload's content. Will be intuited if possible.
filename (optional)
The upload's filename as given by the client (i.e. X on disk). Will be intuited if possible.
content_type (optional)
The content type as reported by the client.


Lazily slurps in the filehandle's content.

new_from_fh Fh

Convenience method, since the other bits can be gleaned from the Fh object.
