Subject Re: Multipart form handling help
Date Wed, 22 Nov 2000 16:06:41 GMT

I wrote a little class to help me handle that stuff.  It allows you to iterate
through the files (it can handle multiple file in a form) and read their output
streams, then it gives you a hastable of the other parameters on the form.  Give
it a try and let me know what you think.
