POST to CGI
[1/3] from: hallvard::ystad::helpinhand::com at: 27-Sep-2001 21:52
The book talks about CGI POSTs on pp.408-409, but it explains only about doing POSTs via HTML tags, not how to programatically do an HTTP POST-request with rebol. If I'd like to post "favourite-meal" = "cake" to http://some.server/cgi-bin/food-processor.pl and retrieve the results... How should I do it? I took a quick look on system/schemes/http/handler, but got quite confused. A quick code sample, anyone? ~H

Thanks, that worked perfectly. I guess 'post is part of some 'read dialect? Someone said, the other day, that we need a dialect documentation dialect. I do agree. ~H
