Subject [users@httpd] 回复: [users@httpd] how to get post data when using shell script as cgi script.
Date Thu, 04 Jan 2018 07:14:46 GMT
thank you very much. in my work, i just need implementing an url interface.  in the beginning,
the interface accept one parameter with only one value in url. but now, we want to put more
than one value into that parameter. as the length of url is limited, i'm trying to transport
that parameter with multiple values within http body.

in my simple scene, using shell script is acceptable.
do you know how to get http request body from shell script?

 Vanity...My favourite sin.

 set is a shell script command not an HTTPD command.

Yes, the person asking the question knows that. They are using their shell's set command to
display all the variables known to the shell session, including environment variables. They
were expecting to find an environment variable that contained the data from the HTTP POST
request. They know that it isn't a HTTP(D) command. They are asking how to read the HTTP POST
data stream from a shell script as opposed to a more typical language like Python or C++.

My advice to the OP is don't use shell scripts (that is, a program written in sh/bash/ksh/zsh
or similar languages that adhere to the POSIX 1003 shell standard). That can only lead to
much wasted time, bugs, and security holes. Yes, it is technically possible to handle a HTTP
POST request using such a shell. But you shouldn't do it.
