Description

The GETPARAMETER() function is used in .rsp scripts to return the value of a parameter passed to a .rsp script or return an alternative value if the parameter was not passed. Parameters are read from the _request dynamic array, which contains the keys and values from the URL request. The name of the parameter is specified in <expC1>. An alternative value for the parameter is specified in <expC2> and this will be read if the parameter is not passed.
