Thank you for the reply -- that works perfectly. I do have another

I'm trying to understand how form data/values are passed to the handler when
the client does a POST. The docs seem to say conflicting thing. This page:


says the form data is passed as arguments to the handler. This seems to work
and every example code I've seen uses this method. But this page:


states that form data/values are passed in as an instance for the
FieldStorage class in a variable called 'form' in the request object. I have
never seen an instance of this object or any variable named 'form' in the
request structure. What am I misunderstanding?

The first method (values passed as arguments to the handler) works for
simple/small forms, but one of my pages contains a large variable length
form with many fields. Being able to fetch the values using the FieldStorage
class which be much more practical.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
