CGIGETVALUE(3)	       FreeBSD Library Functions Manual		CGIGETVALUE(3)

NAME
     cgigetvalue -- gets the value belonging to	name

SYNOPSIS
     #include <cgi.h>

     const char	*
     cgigetvalue(char *name);

DESCRIPTION
     The cgigetvalue() function	is used	to get the value of name passed	to a
     cgi script.  It will automaticly determines the method used to submit the
     information from the browser.

     The first call will automaticly create a internal search table that is
     used to look up the values.  This will be used in following calls to
     cgigetvalue() until either	cgiclose(3) or cginewquerystr(3) is called.
     After one of those	functions is called, cgigetvalue() will	either reread
     the QUERY_STRING environment variable if the method is GET, or parse the
     string passed to cginewquerystr(3)	.

RETURN VALUES
     The cgigetvalue() function	returns	a pointer to the value associated with
     name if name exists; otherwise a null pointer is returned.

SEE ALSO
