[REBOL] Re: better post, get, cookie support?

From: rebologue:ya:hoo at: 27-Aug-2002 8:39

Rebol would be very attractive if it could easily transact with webservers exactly like a command-line web browser (minus rendering and JavaScript, etc.). I know that the protocols, the bits and pieces are already there; I'm talking about out-of-the-box support. 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 Trap/manage redirects 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? // Ed --- Petr Krenzelok <[petr--krenzelok--trz--cz]> wrote:
