Although I did not expect to find it, I searched my C: drive for uncgi.* and
found nothing. Do you have a location where uncgi can be obtained? How would
its use help the present problem of just obtaining the string sent by Submit

    And one more magic trick to make it even easier.  There is a program
uncgi that takes the information from the URL it is passed, decodes it to
remove the various character encodings, and puts the information in to
environment variables.  Makes GET style cgi programs a breeze.  (It also
allows your programs to reside outside the CGI directory, but doesn't
compromise security...)
