Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This code will do the job :


# To handle input from forms / URL

#Putting the Query_string into a variable
      if ($ENV{'REQUEST_METHOD'} eq POST)
            read (STDIN, $QueryString, $DataLength);
            $QueryString = $ENV{'QUERY_STRING'};

#Splitting the pairs and putting them in a list
      @NameValuePairs = split (/&/, $QueryString);

#Preparing for HTML stuff

      print "Content-type: text/html","\n\n";      # MIME header

      print "<HTML>","\n";
      print "<HEAD>","\n";
      print "<TITLE>","Parameters sent in","</TITLE>","\n";
      print "</HEAD>","\n\n";
      print "<BODY>","\n\n";
#Separating the pairs and displaying them on screen.

      $n = 0;
      foreach $NameValue (@NameValuePairs)
            ($Name, $Value) = split (/=/, $NameValue);
            $Value =~ tr/+/ /;
            $Value =~ s/%([\dA-Fa-f][\dA-Fa-f])/ pack ("C", hex ($1))/eg;

            print "Variable=$Name, Value=$Value <BR>\n";

      print "</BODY>","\n\n";
      print "</HTML>","\n\n";
