I am working on a simple CGI script to use as a framework for a website
of mine. Basically, I want it to work as follows: When somebody accesses
the site, a CGI (called e.g. index.py) is run. It takes an html-template
and fills it with content from another file, called e.g. index.dat, and
returns the completed html-document. When I want to present another
page, I want the url to look like this: http://my.domain.name/?page. In
that case, index.py would fill the same template with the content of a
file called e.g. page.dat.
Now, my problem is to find out what follows behind the question mark in
my CGI script. Unless the key has a value
(http://my.domain.name/?key=value), it is not in the cgi.FieldStorage
dictionary. Is it simply impossible, or am I not using the right
Any help is appreciated.
