View Generated Post Data

Discussion in 'HTML' started by Denis McMahon, Jun 29, 2012.

  1. I'm trying to track down a weird data anomaly - basically somewhere
    between the textarea that I enter data in and the cgi that's processing
    the post data, it seems some carriage return characters are being added
    to the newlines.

    As everything is running on linux boxes of various flavours, this is
    confusing me.

    Without firing up something like wireshark, is there any way to view the
    post data that firefox is sending to the remote server?

    The problem seems to occur with multiple browsers, so I'm guessing it
    might either be (a) some proxy running under an ms os between me and the
    server, (b) apache on the server, or (c) the cgi handling code that
    passes the form data to my code on the server. Unfortunately I don't have
    access to debug apache on the server. :(

    One could set a form to get rather then post to view what is being sent. So
    when %0D%0A is present …

    I think you may see that the browser is sending crlf.

    A conclusion is the place where you get tired of thinking.
