Thank you. I already found it in Perl and PHP; I'm being wierd trying to find it outside of those.
My youngest brother wants to take orders for products over the web and process them in Basic. He knows Basic and refuses to learn anything else, so I'm looking for a Basic solution. I haven't found the proper combination of "open" and "input" to pull the "post" data in Basic, and I haven't found a way to convince him to learn Perl or PHP.
While working on the Basic problem, I decided to try for a truly generalized solution that would work for any language. Believe it or not, I almost have it for DOS batch files! Unfortunately, "almost" isn't quite what I want. Yes, I'm wierd!
