Could anyone please tell me what the following line in Perl/CGI does?

$FileNameMime = uploadInfo($FileName)->{'Content-Type'}?

Watch Question


that line calls the uploadInfo method and will provide header information from the file $Filename and put it into the variable $FileNameMime.

I take it you are writing a script to upload files through a browser using CGI.pm.
