( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

This probably is not the best way to get form results to XML.

But the challenge I'm having is I would like to be able to capture mulitiple same name keys. Example

Plese enter your birth date

<INPUT TYPE="text" SIZE=30 NAME=Birthdate>

Plese enter your birth date

<INPUT TYPE="text" SIZE=30 NAME=Birthdate>

It's a long form and these same name keys are throughout the form

I made it this far in the code capturing mulitple same names

After decoding %xy:Name=Mark Shortt&Salary=$5555.00&Birthdate=04/18/58&Birthdate=04/19/59

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After decoding + and &:

<response>

<Salary>$5555.00</Salary>

<Birthdate>04/19/59</Birthdate>

<Name>Mark Shortt</Name>

</response>

# Extracting the + and & and creating key/value pairs

@key_value=split(/&/, $inputstring);

foreach $pair ( @key_value){

($key, $value) = split(/=/, $pair);>/p>

$input{$key} = $value; # Creating a hash

},

# After decoding

print "-" x 80, "
";

print "After decoding + and &:
";

print "<response>
";

while(($key, $value)=each(%input)){

print "<$key>$value</$key>
";

}

print "</response>
"
