Access raw CGI post data


#1

What’s the best way to access the raw HTTP POST data in a ruby script
being used for CGI? Is there something comparable to PHP’s
$HTTP_RAW_POST_DATA?

Thank you kindly,
Jeremy

Why? Just use CGI.rb, and it’ll parse all that stuff out for you.
Besides, from the very scanty info I could find from a quick Google,
PHP doesn’t guarantee you’ll even have that variable all the time.
