Environment variables to CGI executables
Posted on 1997-10-13
Thanks for helping, I'm completly stuck.
I'm trying to setup a Web search engine on a NT 4.0
I'm calling /scripts/cgi.exe, that I wrote in 'C'
as an ACTION of a html FORM statememt.
The FORM statememt has two INPUT TYPE=TEXT and one
INPUT TYPE=RADIO sections.
Chapter 8 of the help for Microsofts Internet
Explorer says the following environment variables
are setup. However as you can see from the list
below, some are not. In particular the QUERY_STRING
is not setup, its the QUERY_STRING I particualy want
to get hold of. Any idears?
Also when I manage to access the QUERY_STRING will
it need further parsing? Is there someting that Microsoft
ship for NT 4.0 Server that does the parsing for you?
Thanks for any help you can give.
