  • Part of the trouble is the lack of support. I always use URI.pm to generate URLs with query strings correctly, but it insists on producing ampersands. I know, I should submit a patch.

    The other part of the problem is the fact that our tools are fundamentally broken and insecure [happygiraffe.net].

      I don't think that's a URI.pm bug, since escaping the query string is only relevant when it's being used as an attribute value. I'd say it's a bug in whatever is generating the HTML code.

      (Unless you mean the patch changes it to emit semi-colons instead of ampersands, in which case, I apologize, because you're correct.)

      • Yes, that's exactly what I was referring to. I reckon that there should be a global variable in URI::_query or something to set which one you would prefer. I haven't looked at the relevant bug yet to see if that's how it's done.
