Yes it is.  Assume that the user has to enter the file name (with the path)
on a form.  You use File type form element which allows the user to browse
for the file.
Using CGI module, and a Submit button (or some javascript with a submit
function) this form element has a KEY.  The VALUE of this key is the Byte
content of the file, NOT the file name.  Thus, by using the VALUE KEY, the
server is actually receiving the byte content.  From there on, the sky is
the limit.
