I'll reword that:
A client is writing a string to the web server (IPlanet on a Sun Server)
using a java program. The client then establishes a connection with a cgi
Python program on the server. This client wants the string to be passed
into this cgi Python script on the server.
There are no name=value request pairs. How can this cgi Python script read
the string sent to the web server. The client is POSTING the string as a
REQUEST. For the Pythong cgi script I am using CGI module to handle
requests and responses. However, how do you handle this REQUEST?
