Pass parameters on a redirct


#1

The client presses a submit button.

The path goes to a .cgi script that gathers the form params.

How can I pass those parameter onto another page?

EX.
#!/usr/bin/ruby

-ruby--

require ‘cgi’
cgi = CGI.new

def redirect( new_page )
print “Location:#{new_page}\n\n”
end

all_params = cgi.params

if ( !all_params.include? ‘select’)
redirect(‘selectPage.rhtml’)
else
redirect(‘genPage.rhtml’)
end

How do I pass ‘all_params’ to page I’m redirecting to?

Thanks

You must save them in the user’s session. Rails has this it’s called the
flash, temporary storage between two pages.

I were you I would really consider ruby on rails for web programming,
it’s
not a steep learning curve and you solve your problems with much fewer
lines of code.

harp:~ > cat a.rb
require ‘cgi’

class Hash
def query
map{|k,v| [CGI.escape(k), CGI.escape(v)].join(’=’)}.join(’&’)
end
end

cgi = CGI.new

def redirect( new_page , params)
print “Location:#{ new_page }?#{ params.query }\n\n”
end

if ( !all_params.include? ‘select’)
redirect(‘selectPage.rhtml’, cgi.params)
else
redirect(‘genPage.rhtml’, cgi.params)
end
