php to perl

$strXmlData = isset($_POST['domainID']) ? $_POST['domainID'] : null;

what is the perl equivalent?

isset($_GET['domainID']) ? $_GET['domainID'] : null;

is converted to

 $q->param('domainID') ? $q->param('domainID') : '';

but I'm not sure if the code should be different for POST vs. GET..

No, you don't need to change to code.  The CGI module can import either post or get submissions with the same code.

Here's a shorter method.

$strXmlData = $q->param('domainID') || '';
