Subject: passing values

I have a couple of questions that I haven't seen the answers to. If
someone could point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it.


Before fastcgi I had a reference such as:

<a href="cgi-bin/literature/reports.cgi?order_nbr=16">linkname</a>

How can I call that program now if it has been set up to use fastcgi? I
start the port using:

!/appl/enterprise/cgi-bin/cgi-fcgi -f
 -start -connect :6652

Then I open a URL that is:

#!/appl/enterprise/cgi-bin/cgi-fcgi -f
 -bind -connect localhost:6652

How do I pass 'order_nbr=16' (or whatever the order_nbr may be)??


What would I specify for the ACTION value in <FORM>? Previously it was
ACTION='report.cgi'. How would I specify that in fastcgi?
