Capturing All Variables

I need to capture all the variables from a POST submitted form. Take in mind that the fields in this form are unknown, that means the CFM template is a generic one. It's easy with GET submitted form because one can use CGI.QUERY_STRING and list manipulation functions. I can't seem to find an environment variable like CGI.QUERY_STRING to handle POST submitted forms. Help?

 <CFLOOP INDEX="form_element" LIST = "#FORM.fieldnames#">

<cfset Item#form_element# = #FORM.fieldnames#>

<cfset Value#form_element# = #Evaluate(FORM.fieldnames)#>


The var Form.fieldnames is a list of all of the fields comma delimited.

ex:  field1,field2,field3


ex:  first,last,address

Hope this helps.

Aaaaah, exactly what I am looking for.

Thanx a lot.
the line...

<cfset Value#form_element# = #Evaluate(FORM.fieldnames)#>

should be

<cfset Value#form_element# = #Evaluate(form_element)#>

I preferred to do something like this:

       <cfset fieldNamesArray = ArrayNew(1)>
       <cfset fieldValuesArray = ArrayNew(1)>
       <cfset arrayIndex = 1>

       <cfset formFieldNamesArray = ListToArray(form.fieldnames, ",")>

       <cfloop index="fieldName" list="#form.fieldNames#">

        <cfset fieldNamesArray[arrayIndex] = #fieldName#>
        <cfset fieldValuesArray[arrayIndex] = #evaluate(fieldName)#>
        <cfset arrayIndex = IncrementValue(arrayIndex)>
