I saw that. I may port his cgi module to Oberon.

he did a fine job!

Good to know! I find XDS a bit of a challenge to get it to work for
me. Maybe it's because it seems to be a mixture of Modula-2 and
Oberon-2. I know Modula-2 less than I know Oberon-2 - and that's next
to nothing (yet).

I hope so! In order for that to happen, I need a procedure - like
"getenv(some_env_var)" that will fetch the state of all the CGI
environment variables. I don't think that Oberon ships with such a
procedure in any of its library modules. Might need to "import" some C
code - depending on the compiler.

That would be useful too.

He just told me. That's good! L8r...
