The output is compatible to 'decode-cgi wherever possible. So the output contains a list of set-word's and values, one pair for each data field. example: [ field1: "foo" field2: "bar" ] If the content type of one part of the form-data is not equal to text/plain, then the value of the respective mime-part is an object! with the following attribs: filename, type, content. example: [ field1: "foo" field2: make object! [ filename: "user.xml" type: "text/xml" content: "<?xml version='1.0'><user />" ] ] } -- snap -- -- Best regards, Andreas mailto:[andreas--bolka--gmx--net]
