This is the way handles it -- we allow files to be uploaded as part of packages: Step 1 - HTML Should look something like this.....Your browser will prompt you to enter the local file name <form enctype="multipart/form-data" action="your-cgi-script.r"> <input type="file" name="file-name" size="50"> <input type="submit" name="update" value="update"> </form> Step 2 -- multi-part decode You need Andreas' magic code for handling multi-part binary data. Get it from here: Step 3 -- your CGI program Needs to call Andreas' function to create an object, eg post-data: read-cgi cgi-object: construct decode-multipart-form-data system/options/cgi/content-type copy post-data probe cgi-object ;;; to see what you got to work with. You may need to fiddle around if your form has *optional* multi-part data as Andreas' code will fail if none are present. You'll also need to parse the uploaded file name to get the bit you want as it'll be the fully-qualified path of the *local* name. Watch out for "\" in the path -- IE can send them to you...other browsers correctly give you "/"s Sunanda.
