Since my form uses post, I guess it Jellybean wouldn't work.

09 September 2003

I added Jellybean::Container::CGI, a container that allows you to run CGI programs from Jellybean. Yeah, it seems like a weird thing, but it's very handy. It's currently limited to very simple programs ó GET is supported. POST is not. Query strings are supported. Cookies are not.

    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. :) 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.
