has historically been the script to which data was posted when you
wanted to update something in the database.
Today it is used for editing by only a few scripts, actually only the

find in TYPO3 are normally rendered and handled by
\TYPO3\CMS\Core\DataHandling\DataHandler on its own.
For commands it is still used from various locations.

|GP var name||Data type||Description|

|cacheCmd||string||Cache command sent to
|redirect||string||Redirect URL. Script will redirect to this location after performing operations (unless errors has occurred)|
|flags||array||Accepts options to be set in TCE object. Currently it supports “reverseOrder” (boolean).|
