Starting a cgi process

I assume there's a simple way to do the following, but I can't find  
it in the documentation.

I understand how to use a form to pass data to, and start, a Rev cgi  
process, for example:

<form action="http://myserver/cgi-bin/DoRevRoutine.cgi" method="get">
.... form data goes in here, which is received in the Rev script  
through $QUERY_STRING
<input type="submit" value="search">
</form>

How do I pass data to, and start, a Rev cgi process using just a  
hyperlink?

I'm guessing I can use this type of html syntax:
<a href=http://myserver/cgi-bin/DoRevRoutine.cgi....
with something coming after ".cgi" which can pass data to the Rev cgi  
script.

What's the syntax for creating the hyperlink and then receiving and  
parsing the data in the script?

Thanks.
