Hello unique,

Forms in Flash are just some textboxes with certain names, in other
words, they can be called textfields. You may easily build a submit
button and send variables using GET or PUT to send infomations
filled in forms to a script. If you are not familiar with scripting with
Perl. I recommend a good language to you, PHP. Why ? Because
in Php, parsing a form requires only a one-line-program!

For further information, you may obtain a Postman program from
www.flashlite.net which involves Flash and Php.
