Handle Common Gateway Interface requests and responses
This is the continuance of the classic perl CGI module, bundled with Perl until Perl 5.22. Development is continuing on p5-CGI and components of it are actively splitting to other modules.
The older, everything-in-one-package module is still available in www/p5-CGI.pm.
