A follow up from here I now trying to use the *Post_Server* script from here

in a POST response back to the script this is what i managed to receive (a POST back from a submitted form)

Accept: */*
Content-Length: 1283
Expect: 100-continue
Content-Type: multipart/form-data; boundary=------------------------2b466814ebaf785b

That is some sort of an array, right ?
Any one have an idea how it can be made to be received in readable format and in to an array perhaps


Edit:  I have been explained it is done in PHP like so, where print_r($post, TRUE) is the real deal

$file = 'textfile.txt';
$post = stripslashes_deep($_REQUEST);
$post_content = print_r($post, TRUE);
$fp = fopen($file, 'w') or die('Could not open file!');
fwrite($fp, $post_content) or die('Could not write to file');

Just to see if im understanding ..,so this is treated as a header that comes as POST

Content-Type: multipart/form-data; boundary=------------------------2b466814ebaf785b

Then what ? , I determine that the header contains the string "boundary=--" and then make a request to the forms address at the address where its been submitted to  receive data
Still not sure what to try ..

When a request comes with boundary, here's what it looks like (example taken from HTML specs posted by @Kyan):

Content-Type: multipart/form-data; boundary=AaB03x

   Content-Disposition: form-data; name="submit-name"

   Content-Disposition: form-data; name="files"; filename="file1.txt"
   Content-Type: text/plain

   ... contents of file1.txt ...

As you can see, the boundary is used as separator between the different form inputs, such that:

  • --[boundary] is used to separate different inputs
  • --[boundary]-- is used at the end of the request

However note that it only happens when you're using `<form enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post">`. If you are using just `<form method="post">`, you will only get a URL encoded line with all the key=value pairs of form inputs at the last line of the request as I posted on the other thread (no boundaries needed). However you are only able to accept file uploads with multipart/form-data (so if you are not willing to do file uploads, I'd recommend not to use this encoding type).
