cgiGetFile(3) Return information of a CGI file variable


#include <cgi.h>

s_file *cgiGetFile (s_cgi *parms, const char *name);


This routine returns a pointer to a datastructure associated with the value of a CGI file variable. The pointer must not be freed.

The s_file structure is declared as follows:

typedef struct file_s {
    char   *name,
} s_file;

Memory allocated by this data structure is automatically freed by the final call to cgiFree(3).


On success a pointer to the s_file datastructure is returned. If the variable wasn't transmitted or the through CGI or if the filename was empty NULL is returned.
