View data POSTed to a web page?

You know how when you hit the back button to a page where a form was posted, the browser can say "this page contains posted data, click to resend" or whatever the message is...

Is there a way to view that data that was posted to the site if the result page does not display it?

I'm not talking about on a secure server, just a regular old http page.

I am creating an app that posts data to a destination page unencrypted from a flash program and I'm wondering how easy it is for someone to see that data if it is not displayed on the results page. Obviously for a standard web form you could look at the form code but since it's in a flash app they can't really see the variables or results that are being sent on the user end.

Thanks!

That looks really nice, thanks.

I think I would have to pay 295 bucks to get the full version and view the posted data unless it is contained in the basic set. I might give the free version a shot first but it would be good to hear of any other options out there.

Reading through all the features, this may be a valuable tool for me to purchase any way but it might be overkill for a single application if there is something cheap or free out to just get me the post data.

That looks incredibly useful as well. I'll explore both of these.

Thanks again!

If you use Firefox, there's an add-on named "Live HTTP headers" that can capture GET/POST info.
