How to tell GET from POST method ni CGI.pm?
I am beginning to work on hardening my website against cross site request
forgeries. I use CGI.pm.

My question is, how can I tell, using CGI.pm, if this webpage was invoked
with a GET or POST method?

Thanks

You're probably intersted in: $q->request_method

It should also be available in an environment variable of the same
name: $ENV{'REQUEST_METHOD'}
