In that case a simple awk-script should do the job. Except: how would I
access the environment from awk? Do I need a shell wrapper, like this:

awk -v length=$CONTENT_LENGTH '{ loop over cgi-data }'

or does awk support that sort of thing itself? On the other hand, I need a
shell-wrapper to call 'ls -l', so that awk can extract the directory data
from it. But the question stands nonetheless.
