Hello,

I would like to know if anyone could help me get data from an HTTP Post.
Lets say I have an incoming string of data like such:

Name="Wendy" Color="Blue" Address="333 west"

I want to capture that entire string and then write it to a file. I can write to a file
fine, I am having trouble capturing the entire string. I have used the $_Post and
$HTTP_POST_VARS with no luck, it seems that I can only capture the first part of the string:

ie:
$data = $HTTP_POST_VARS['Name'];
or
$data = $_POST['Name'];

would get this result: "Wendy" Color="Blue" Address="333 west"

I want to capture the whole string like this:
Name="Wendy" Color="Blue" Address="333 west"

If I could parse it before I write it to the file, that would be even better..but I will
take the whole string.

Any help would be appreciated.

thanks

$name = $_POST['Name'];
$address = $_POST['Address'];
$color = $_POST['Color'];

are you looking for something like:
$_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']
