Right, if you need to launch an external program via the CGI interface, it doesn't yet support POST. If you invoke it through the Jellybean::Container interface, you can do anything you like.

That's not to say I can't (or won't) enhance Jellybean::Container::CGI to handle POST requests. It's just that I haven't yet had the need. :)

    Oh...it sounds like it will work now. Unfortunately, I'll have to use Jellybean as motivation to learn more about Perl rather than as a part of my program, for now, since I can't figure out what to do with it. I went all out developing my application after learning just enough Perl to make it possible, and I practically use Perl as a low level language, except for regexes to parse HTML, which won't win me extra points.

    To pass form data to my script on my Windows computer, I decided to try embedding VBScript in my HTML form and using VBScript's FileSystemObject to write a file that my script will read. I heard VBScript is going away, and I don't think FileSystemObject has been around that long, but at least it looks like something I could handle.
