I am writing a CGI program in C++. When my web server passes environment variables on to the program it send them seperated, eg: If the query string (following the '?') said paul+rules, my program is passed the variables 'paul' and 'rules'. I have no way of knowing if it was a plus or a = sign that was joing the variables.
Also, if I write a perl script in CGI I am able to access variables like PATH_INFO, and one that carries the users IP Address. I seem unable to access those.
If anyone has any idea's on this subject or know's a place with a lot of people who do, could you please reply?
Thanks for listening to me ramble, Paul.
