cgi_parse — Parse incoming CGI data

Synopsis

#include <cgi/cgi.h>
NEOERR *cgi_parse (CGI *cgi);

Arguments

cgi - a pointer to a CGI pointer

Description

We split cgi_init into two sections, one that parses just the basics, and the second is cgi_parse. cgi_parse is responsible for parsing the entity body of the HTTP request. This payload is typically only sent (expected) on POST/PUT requests, but generally this is called on all incoming requests. This function walks the list of registered parse callbacks (see cgi_register_parse_cb), and if none of those matches or handles the request, it

handlers: POST w/ application/x-www-form-urlencoded POST w/ application/form-data PUT w/ any content type In general, if there is no Content-Length, then cgi_parse ignores the payload and doesn't raise an error.

Return Value

Either data populated into files and cgi->hdf, or whatever
other side effects of your own registered callbacks.
