Anyways,
Hello Stefan: Yes. I would suspect that you are better off hand-rolling your own cgi decoding. I also believe that your data object will be mangled by decode-cgi if you have data or field names will embedded spaces. I could send you mine if you wish. Just give me a holler if that's what you want. My cgi library anticipates a few other gotchas too.... HTH Tim
