How Servers (Apache/Nix) handle html file uploads..

How does a server actual handle a file upload? Given a form with multipart/form-data and a field for the file. What occurs after the submit.

Is it language dependent to retrieve the file. Or does the server automatically write the file to a temp directory.

The guts and details please.

I will end up writing a script in Perl to handle this and of course most likely use a cpan module, but wanted the details first.
