CGI Script to GET HTTP URL string

I need a simple script to GET HTTP URL string variables and then to post them to another URL.

Lets call variable on string www.mysite.com/cgi-bin?Firstname=FName

Post to www.mysite2.com/form.htm?FName=Fred

Can someone point me in the right direction?

I'm not real clear what you are asking, but if you want a script that will get the page from the url:

use LWP::Simple;
my $URLString = 'www.mysite.com/cgi-bin?Firstname=FName';
my $page = get($URLString);
#now $page contains the content from the url

Open in new window

I am using POST HTTP from my 3rd party server to post to my cgi-bin file. I need the script set there to get it, and then post it to another URL, which will host a page that will take the string and submit it via form action to another 3rd party host.


Step 1:  Shopping cart via silent post http to cgi-bin.

Step 2: Cgi-bin receives(need script) to pass variables back out(need script)  to webpage that contains form variable fields via URL.

Step 3: Webpage then passes form data onload.

Step 3 is built...done....Step 1 is automation upon a successful purchase....I need Step 2 .

Thanks for the reply.
So yo need two separate scripts written?
