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

I need a script to receive a POST request and then to send that same POST request to a different script. I don't mean that this is a redirect: the user interacts only with script 1; script 2 does not return any data.

What's the quickest and dirtiest way of doing this? A possible solution is, of course, to parse the data using CGI, then to form and send a POST request using LWP, but this seem un-Perl-like and inelegant. Surely there's a simpler solution?

Edited to add: this needs to be accomplished via a POST request to script 2. Not, say, via exec.

Edited to add 2: I think I need to re-phrase the question. How about this:

Is there a way to take the request that was used to access a cgi script and turn it into an HTTP::Request object?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
