Retrieves a parameter passed in to the SIML script

Retrieves a parameter passed in to the SIML script from the web server via GET, POST, or multi-part POST. Passed in parameters are accessable globally from within the script, any includes, or functions.

Parameter requires at least one parameter-- the name or number of the parameter to read. Parameters can be read via name, or ordered number. You can optionally specify a count for named variables if more than one may be returned.

You may also optionally specify the data type of the parameter. If you do not specify a data type, SIML will attempt to determine it automatically.

Parameter is not case sensitive, so passing argument one as "ABC" or "abc" will yield the same results.
