This is the quinessencial OSAX for WWW scripting on a Macintosh with AppleScript. With two simple commands (
parse CGI arguments and
CGI field) you can very quickly decode and parse the any search or POST arguments sent to a script. This script beats Decode URL and Tokenize since it essentially combines the functions of these OSAX into one and does it more efficiently.
