CGI - Echo of Post Data - Environment Variables

Posted on 2000-05-08

I used to have a site that I could bounce my http form (post) request against and it would return a page that would include all the cgi environment variables -- in addition to the post string of form variables.  
That site is no longer live.  Can anyone give me an URL which does the same thing?     (or a vbscript .ASP which I can run on my IIS server?)

Thanks!

Give you a script:
This is URL:
http://alleasy.net/cgi-bin/getform.pl

make sample form code:

<FORM method="POST" action="http://alleasy.net/cgi-bin/getform.pl">
  <P><INPUT type="text" name="T1" size="20"><INPUT type="submit" value="submit" name="B1"><INPUT type="reset" value="reset" name="B2"></P>
</FORM>

if you have any problem, please say.


This is Source code of getform.pl:

#!/usr/bin/perl
use CGI;
$hoyi=new CGI;

print $hoyi->header;
print $hoyi->start_html('CGI Enviroment!');
## Print all you post var
print $hoyi->dump;
## print all Env var
print "\n<pre>\n";
foreach (keys(%ENV)) {
      print "$_ = $ENV{$_} \n";
}
print "\n</pre>";
exit;

That URL doesn't list the string of "post data".  The reason I wanted that is so that I can put into my html a single link that does the exact same thing as the form post would do.  Thus if I can see the post string that the browser issues when I click on the form's submit, then I will know what my link needs to say.

The URL you provide does have a line for "QUERY_STRING" .., which shows what I would want for a "GET" request, but the URL doesn't show the form variables like that if it is a "POST" request.

That perl could probably be tweaked to generate the equivalent POST DATA into a string ..., but I did a bit more searching and found this URL:

http://www.neosoft.com/neowebscript/tests/environment.html

It handles both GET and POST requests.

Thanks so much for your answer and Perl script -- they both came in very handy!
