I want send files from the internet browser to my CGI application.

Note:

There is no problem in sending file from browser, but the problem is in receiving that file.

I use STAND-ALONE CGI

When you say 'receiving' the file, what are you trying to do from the Delphi side to read it?

I do not know where is the problem is it in the HTML form ( I use encrypt="multi-part/form-data") or in the CGI, I use this method to read the file:

var
  Buf: array [0 .. 4000] of char;
  Len: Integer;
begin
  Len:= Request.ReadClient(Buf, SizeOf(Buf));
  // The program hangs in this point. and the CGI does not responding
end;

No problem , anytime.
Just keep the copyrights of that component.
why don't use ISAPI instead of CGI it is more powerful?

I didn't think so, any thing in ISAPI can be done using CGI, and I do not want to use web server applications for large systems, I only expect less than 20 concurrent users for all my applications. Moreover when I use ISAPI I need to restart my computer when I need to modify my ISAPI DLL.
If you have a solution for this restarting please tell me.

Thanks very much
