Is it possible to access environmental variables (i.e., cookie) from a cgi written in Applescript?
Handle CGI Request can capture what I think you are looking for. I use one that determines if the user is on a Mac or PC, what the referring page is, and IP address is.

You would still need to parse the posted arguments to get the data posted.
A couple of the browser types returned in my script look like:
Hope this helps…
But you need a third part software such as CGI enabler (oS X Server) or ACGI Dispatcher, you can make it work direclty with Apache.
