[REBOL] Re: decode-cgi bug (imbedded spaces in names)

From: tim::johnsons-web::com at: 9-Feb-2004 14:47

* Hallvard Ystad <[hallvard--ystad--oops-as--no]> [040209 13:31]: It looks like Hallvard's problem is being addressed, but I want to note that I modified decode-cgi so that a block of string pairs is returned rather than a block of alternating to-set-word types and strings. Reason for it: A rebol cgi program might be processing a form in which field names have imbedded spaces. This isn't a practice of mine, and I avoid it on any of our projects, but the eventuality would yield unpredicatable results: example:
>> res: context decode-cgi "field one=1&fieldtwo=2" >> probe res
make object! [ field one: "1" fieldtwo: "2" ]
>> res/fieldtwo
== "2"
>>res/field one
** Script Error: Invalid path value: field ** Near: res/field one tim
