This section describes how to add rudimentary input to your .script files by extending your URLs.
http_search_args are variables, you can supply rudimentary input to your .script files by defining the values of these variables in a URL. To do so you need to keep in mind the following guidelines:
path_argsare defined by the text after the dollar sign ($) and before the question mark (?).
http_search_argsare defined by the text following the question mark (?).
http_search_argstrings must be encoded according the specification layed out for URLs.
script_nameis consistent in the output for all three scripts.
Unfortunately, getting input in this manner is impractical; it would be difficult, if not impossible, to get your readers to enter such hard-to-read and understand URLs.
