[REBOL] Re: better post, get, cookie support?
From: rebologue:yah:oo at: 27-Aug-2002 8:39
Rebol would be very attractive if it could easily
transact with webservers exactly like a command-line
know that the protocols, the bits and pieces are
already there; I'm talking about out-of-the-box
Currently, you need to know many system settings and
Rebol-specific network issues. For example, how to:
Bake your own cookie management system
Negotiate POST/GET transactions
Set the USER-AGENT, encoding types, etc.
Handle http uploads
Https and ftp
The list of needs are pretty attainable and
well-defined. I think it would help RT to sew this up
a bit better so that it is a key feature. But since
they are busy inventing the future, it would be
extremely beneficial to the Rebol if a standard script
or proxy mode were made available by some of the
CGI/http/networking gurus on this list. Then
spidery-apps and dashboards like Watson would be
attainable by nearly anyone with /View and a keyboard.
How popular might a solid kit like this be? Try VERY.
I mean, does anyone really want to muck around with Tk
and Perl for this sort of thing?
