I have two file welcome.html and chkpwd.asp
In the first file i have this code:
<FORM METHOD="POST"  ACTION="http//......................./cgi-bin/chkpwd.asp">
<INPUT TYPE="text" SIZE=20 NAME="Utente">
<INPUT TYPE="password" SIZE=20 NAME="password">
<INPUT TYPE="submit"  NAME="Send" VALUE="Procedi">
</FORM>
These parameters will go into stdin and PATH_INFO.
From the second file chkpwd.asp what is the function (like scanf(%s, stringa_input) c language)
to read the values of the parameters from stdin or  PATH_INFO variable ??

Don't know ASP, but usually you read from stdin with fgets() from <stdio.h>, THEN process the read buffer. For env vars instead, you read with getenv() from <stdlib.h>.

Good luck, julio

Request.ServerVariables("PATH_INFO")

I use this ASP script often to test request variables from a form:
It shows ServerVariables, Form and Querystring variables


<TABLE BORDER=1 WIDTH=100%>

<TR>
      <TH COLSPAN=2> HTTP / Server Variables</TH>
</TR>


<TR>
      <TD><B>Server Variable</B></TD>
      <TD><B>Value</B></TD>
</TR>
      <% For Each name In Request.ServerVariables %>
<TR>
      <TD> <%= name %> </TD>
      <TD> <%= Request.ServerVariables(name) %> </TD>
</TR>

<% Next %>
</TABLE>

<P>&nbsp;</P>

<TABLE BORDER=1 WIDTH=100%>

<TR>
      <TH COLSPAN=2> Querystring</TH>
</TR>

<TR>
      <TD><B>Name</B></TD>
      <TD><B>Value</B></TD>
</TR>
      <% For Each name In Request.Querystring %>
<TR>
      <TD> <%= name %> </TD>
      <TD> <%= Request.Querystring(name) %> </TD>
</TR>

<% Next %>
</TABLE>


<P>&nbsp;</P>

<TABLE BORDER=1 WIDTH=100%>

<TR>
      <TH COLSPAN=2> Form Data</TH>
</TR>

<TR>
      <TD><B>Name</B></TD>
      <TD><B>Value</B></TD>
</TR>
      <% For Each name In Request.Form %>
<TR>
      <TD> <%= name %> </TD>
      <TD> <%= Request.Form(name) %> </TD>
</TR>

<% Next %>
</TABLE>
