(unknown charset) $EN vironmental

To whom it may concern:

Despite the fact that the turorial isn't
  (tutorials are RICH in examples)
and the documentation was either never prooread, or, if it was, was done
by someone whose grasp of English is minimal,
  I have sort of figured out this works.

I now come to an insurmountable problem.  Apparently there is something
called $ENV.  This
is the array that contains all or most system environmental variables. 
This array is not in the documentation (A text search on all Jigsaw
files failed to find it).  When a perl script is run from dos, or one of
my other servers, it returns numerous variables & their values.  Under
Jigsaw
I get 1 (ONE).  Specifically, content length.

Website, on the otherhand shows

USERNAME = Administrator

SERVER_SOFTWARE = WebSite/1.1f1

DOCUMENT_ROOT = I:\WebSite\htdocs\

GATEWAY_INTERFACE = CGI/1.3 (DOS)

PROCESSOR_IDENTIFIER = x86 Family 5 Model 2 Stepping 12, GenuineIntel

PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE = x86

PROCESSOR_REVISION = 020c

GMT_OFFSET = -28800

NUMBER_OF_PROCESSORS = 1

COMPUTERNAME = MY-NT-COMPUTER

USERPROFILE = H:\WIN_NT\Profiles\Administrator

HTTP_KEEP_ALIVE = NO

SCRIPT_NAME = /gvp3/cgi-bin/signin.cgi

INSTANTCOFFEEPATH = i:\javatools\program

HOMEPATH = \

USERDOMAIN = MY-NT-COMPUTER

CONTENT_LENGTH = 33

CONTENT_TYPE = application/x-www-form-urlencoded

Because the $ENV is not complete, I can not test for the user method -
viz POST or GET.

Please help or advise
