CGI. Define a new param

Is there anyway to manually add to the form data that has been submitted?

What I do is check the cookie and the form data submitted. if a data element is missing I want to add it before feeding the existing form data to subroutines.

i.e. the field TEST is missing. I want to assign a default value of 123

since you can't "$ar->param('TEST')=123;"... it is undefined and you can define an un editable varialble is there any way to modify the form data either before or after $ar = Apache2::Request->new($r); ?

use Apache2::Request ( );
use Apache2::Cookie;
use URI::Escape;
my $r = shift;
my $cookies = Apache2::Cookie->fetch($r);
my $ar = Apache2::Request->new($r);

I don't know about Apache2::Request but the syntax looks similar to CGI and, in CGI, you can do:

$ar->param('TEST', 123);

I would try that and see if it works in AR.
