krusty has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

If I have an html file with a <script> tag is there a way to pass the name and the included parameters of the calling URL?

Thanks,
Kristina

    IE's DHTML/DOM is documented here.

    The document object has a URL property, which would include GET arguments, but not POST arguments.

    If you need POST arguments, the arguments could be included in the generated page as hidden fields (i.e. <input type="hidden" name="name" value="value">). Then your script can get the value of those hidden fields.

    Hello, krusty! The URL of a document is object.LocationURL. You can then pass that to the script.
