thank you all for the help but i have finnaly been able to do what i wanted.
I will not use CGI scripts, its very simple what im doing and i just wanted
the parameters sent on the POST like:

but reading about CGI i discovered that the size of these parameters are in

of bytes to read it has worked fine.

best regards
