Greek characters in query string

I have a cgi script in which the query string has both English characters and Greek characters.

For example, the user may enter in the input box Matt1/και

When the url with the query string is sent to the server (I am using Molly Brown the server and amfora as a client) it is changed the Greek characters using url encoding.

I am wondering how to I decode the url to get back the Greek characters.  I am using bash for my scripts.

Thank you.
