My aim is to build a server that will support file uploading on server and
uploading is to be done using web browser.So i selected php script for file
I made a simple html form.

>  </form> </body>
> </html>

Now this file is sent using POST method and then it will redirect to a php
script named upload_file.php.
So to make use of php i used twcgi.PHPScript. When i checked i am not
getting POST data in php code.
Execution calls twcgi.CGIScript.render method internally.When i checked in
this render method, data sent using POST is available in request.args
variable but not sent to php CLI.
Whereas in case of GET method the url is parsed and data sent using GET
method is put in qargs variable and then sent to php CLI.
