i've got a form with a textarea inside it and want to pass all text inside textarea to an another page through submiting it. I've tried passing this like a normal parameter using GET method, but text inside textarea is normally composed of filepaths like "testdir/lalala/lelelele/text.txt" and when using this method, html parsing converts '/' to %2F and when i try to recover text from next page, my variable cuts abrutly when finds first "/" (f.ex. $TEXTAREA variable is testdir). How i can do it? is there any more eficient and/or elegant method for passing this kind of stuff inside a form?

Thanks in advance!
