I have customers who each upload their files into their individual folders based on their Id number. When they login in, I put their Id nbr into a php $_SESSION[CustId] variable. I would like to have XUploadConfig.pm be able to use the value in the $_SESSION to point the target_dir to their individual upload directory. For example customer with CustId 33 would have the upload go into /data/33/upload and cust 55 have his go to /data/55/upload.
As an alternative idea, maybe I can put an XUploadConfig.pm in each customers directory that has the target_dir pointing to their own upload directory. My php program can pass the $_SESSION[CustId] variable to upload.cgi and it could look in the proper directory based on the CustId for the XUploadConfig.pm to use.
I posed the same problem to the support staff and they replied:

Yes, that's possible, however, it will require script modifications.
Since XUpload is a tool for developers, we assume that you should be able to do that on you own.
I am not a Perl programmer, but have tried several things to no avail.
If anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate the help. Thanks

I wasn't expecting someone to develop something new for me. I was hoping someone out there had run into the same problem and could point me in the right direction. I know there are some very smart people out there that maybe with a hint or two could get me going. I think I just need to be able to pass a variable to Purl to tell it which customer's directory to use. I'm strong in PHP, weak in Purl.
