I should warn you that opening the port as /string may not always be a good idea, since the browser could send you binary data with a POST method (for example), and you will want to send images as binary data. Of course you can use READ-IO and WRITE-IO to read/write binary data on a /string port, but shouldn't we avoid those functions if possible? YARWeS always used /binary ports to communicate with the browser. Regards, Gabriele. -- Gabriele Santilli <[giesse--writeme--com]> - Amigan - REBOL programmer Amiga Group Italia sez. L'Aquila --
