Hi, Ryan, On May 2nd on a different thread ("read bug?"), Holger said (excerpt): <excerpt> About the other problem, i.e. getting data from a POST request within a REBOL CGI script: keep in mind that read-io is a very-low-level read request that returns as soon as the OS returns something. The amount of data returned is not necessarily what was requested. It can be less. This is not a bug, it is by design. If you see a limit of around 4096 bytes then this is caused by how the OS clusters its data. What you need to do in a CGI script is loop until read-io returns 0, e.g. cgi-str: make string! 100000 while [0 < read-io system/ports/input cgi-str 100000] [] </excerpt> I've not had a chance to play with this approach. Maybe it will help. --Scott Jones
