STDIN in cgi script

STDIN in cgi script

STDIN in cgi script

"When a web server receives an HTTP request directed to CGI script, it reads the headers and passes the content body of message to CGI script on STDIN."

To pass a parameter from cmd line, we use <stdin>. In the cgi script, I did not use <stdin> anywhere in the script, so how will parameter be passed ? At what point does <stdin> come in picture in the cgi script ? Is it in the beginning ? Can you pls explain this with example ?

RE: STDIN in cgi script

You already touched on that in your other post. You send data to a CGI script using GET or POST (or other) method. The CGI script has to know how to parse the data sent to it. Perl comes with the CGI module for this purpose.
