url generation

how can i generate a URL with smalltalk with appropriate parameters passed in it?

i sort of know how to do it in PHP, but can't figure out how to do it in smalltalk. i'm basically trying to generate a URL through a search.

this is what i have in php:

list of param names
display=javascript - indicates display (must use javascript) - required
a=ezboard - indicates affiliate tag (ezboard) - required
urlKey=startrek - this is the existing Meetup topic tied to this board
search=Star+Trek - this is the search query keywords (urlencoded)
    $existingMeetup = 'stargate';
    $keyWords = 'Star Trek';
    $meetupUrl = 'http://www.meetup.com/search/?display=javascript&a=ezboard';
    $meetupUrl .= '&urlkey=' . $existingMeetup;

    if ($_REQUEST['search']) {
        $meetupUrl .= '&search=' . urlencode($_REQUEST['search']);

    } else {
        $meetupUrl .= '&search=' . urlencode($keyWords);
<script src="<? echo $meetupUrl; ?>" type="text/javascript"></script>

the PHP vars are:
$existingMeetup - the current Meetup topic urlkey this board is tied to (leave as empty string if the board is not tied to a meetup)
$keyWords - default search words if user does not submit in form (board keywords)
$meetupUrl - URL to Meetup javascript

any help is greatly appreciated.
