[Haskell-cafe] file upload with Network.CGI

Has anyone managed to process the results of a "file upload"
formular, such as

  <form action="input_file.htm" enctype="multipart/form-data">
  <p>Choose a file: <input name="foobar" type="file" size="50"
                           maxlength="100000" accept="text/*">

..., with Network.CGI successfully? I have tried it, but it
appears that the library can't handle the "multipart/form-data"
encoding -- is that possible?

I'll appreciate any suggestions how to work around (or fix) this


P. S.: I have made a lot of changes to the CGI library already;
does anyone actively maintain it? Or should I just post my diffs
on the libraries list?
