our customers, after payinging, end up at a page with the code below, then they click on the submit button on the page:
-----------------------------

<html>

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">

<center>

<table width="600">

<tr><td colspan="2"> rcpt header

                  

                  </td></tr>

<tr>

<td align="center" colspan="2">



<form method="POST" action="http://www.mydomain.com/cgi-bin/myscript.cgi">

<input type="hidden" name="INVOICE" value="1001">

<input type="hidden" name="DESCRIPTION" value="">

<input type="hidden" name="AMOUNT" value="$1.00">

<input type="hidden" name="CUSTID" value="4">

<input type="hidden" name="TYPE" value="NA">

<input type="hidden" name="METHOD" value="MasterCard">

<input type="hidden" name="NAME" value="vern keller">

<input type="hidden" name="ADDRESS" value="1922 some rd">

<input type="hidden" name="CITY" value="phoenix">

<input type="hidden" name="STATE" value="or">

<input type="hidden" name="ZIP" value="82370">

<input type="hidden" name="COUNTRY" value="USA">

<input type="hidden" name="PHONE" value="212-673-4637">

<input type="hidden" name="FAX" value="">

<input type="hidden" name="EMAIL" value="admin@mydomain.com">



<input type="submit" value="Continue">

</form>



</td>

</tr>

</table>

</center>



</body>

</html>


----------------------------

What I need to do is to have the script it is posting to (myscript.cgi)grab the CUSTID value (in the above example it is 4) and turn that into a variable (such as $CUSTID) for the script it is posting to.......which begins with multiple declarations like the following
-----------

#!/usr/local/bin/perl
require "dacfgv.pl";
$goodreferer = "http://www.goodplace.com/test.html";
$badferer = "http://www.goodplace.com/bad.html";
$adminname = "admin";
$username = "testuser1";
$password = "testpass1";

---------------------------
rest of script.........

You can use the ReadParse subroutine that is a part of the
cgi-lib library to read your form data. First you will have
to require cgi-lib, using the following line:

require "/inetpub/scripts/library/cgi-lib.pl";
Note: your path will likely be different, locate the file
on your server first

then the command is:

ReadParse(*form_data);

which creates an associate array (hash) from your form data.
Note: if you don't supply your own hash name (form_data in
the above example) the default name is 'in'

Then you can access your form variables like this:

$CUSTID = $form_data{'CUSTID');

Does that help?

Oliverp,
 Thank you!......I am running perl 5.0003 and i have searched the directories, but no cgi-lib.pl (i did find CGI.pm in the lib directory) Should i get cgi-lib.pl and put it in the lib directory so I can call it?
 Thanx again for all the help

Ok, I tried putting cgi-lib.pl in my cgi-bin.....and added the require and the parse, etc.......

Heres what i am trying to do:
 At the 11th line from the end of this scrip,(print LOG "$FORM{'username'}|$FORM{'name'}|$FORM{'email'}|$FORM{'password'}|$timeStr\n";) it opens LOG and writes the username, name, password, etc to the log file......I want to write the CUSTID value, that was passed from the form in my original message, to this line also. The entire script is below

------------------------
#!/usr/local/bin/perl
require "cfgdafpass.pl";
$goodreferer = "http://www.mydomain.com/testvk1.html";
