[REBOL] Re: works for GET, not POST

From: rchristiansen:pop:isdfa:sei-it at: 30-Jan-2001 11:22

I'm still lost on how to use POST to create an object! containing the values submitted in a form. The following function creates a string! value called 'data, correct? retrieve-user-data: func [] [ either system/options/cgi/request-method = "POST" [ data: make string! 2002 read-io system/ports/input data 2000 ][ cgi: make object! decode-cgi-query system/options/cgi/query-string ] ] The /Core user's guide says "a good format for POST data is to use a REBOL dialect and create a simple parser. The POST data can be loaded and parsed as a block." Why isn't there a built-in function for parsing POST data into an object? Am I missing something? -Ryan
