Web functions

V1 can be used as CGI interpreter. Therefore you have to configurate your Webserver to call v1 -w (with -w option) for every file which should be interpretated with V1.

In Web mode V1 will create the following global Arrays. The name and format of the arrays are compatible to theire PHP pendants.

Name of Array Description
_GET Contain all URL parameters and <form method="get"> values as key / value pairs.
_POST Contain all <form method="post"> values as key / value pairs.
_REQUEST Aggregation of _GET and _POST. Contain all request values as key / value pairs.
_FILES Contain the uploaded filenames. For further information about file uploads read PHP file upload.

In difference to PHP, V1 has no _SERVER array. To get CGI environment variables you have to use the getenv () function. For example getenv('SCRIPT_FILENAME') get the current V1 filename. More Information about possible CGI variables: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Gateway_Interface

The following Web specific functions are supported. The functions are compatible with theire PHP pendants.
