OK - so your program is acting as the web service and receiving json requests. In that case HTTPAPI would not come into play as it is for _consumming_ services such was the one you are providing.

Scott's earlier comments about using environment variables and using them to turn on/off the logging of the json is probably the best approach.

the corresponding URL is used.

Unless I'm confused, he is providing the API... Notice he says
"CGI". So, HTTPAPI is not relevant, here.

Though, I appreciate the kind words :-)

Well I use Scott's HTTPAPI and the on/off capability provided by logging
gives me the data and the rest of the info I need.

At the moment, during testing, each time my CGI programme receives JSON
data, I'm saving it to the IFS.
