Using a VB CGI, I know how to parse the params an their values from a <FORM> by using method="POST".
How can I parse these params, and how can I recognize them in the CGI, using method="GET"?

The params are in an environment variable called QUERY_STRING.
They will be URL Encoded (that is to say some characters will be written as there hex value preceded by an % and all spaces will be converted to +. Each name, value pair will be delimited by a & and each name and value seperated by a =.

So if the url was

http://mysite.mydomain.com/myprog.cgi?p1=fred&p2=fred+flintstone

then QUERY_STRING will contain
p1=fred&p2=fred+flintstone

I think your answer goes well for ''GET"- method, what about the "POST"-method?
Isn't it different? I think it is. So....?

Thanks anyway, Steve!
