Hi Andrew, On Thursday, August 8, 2002, 6:42:53 AM, you wrote: AM> and so I know the length needed. AFAIK READ-IO is not guaranteed to return the asked length; it returns UP TO the asked length of data, but does not wait for it to arrive if it is not there. (Anyone correct me if I don't recall correctly; I no more used READ-IO after the NO-WAIT mode has been introduced.) AM> Let's hope there's something better soon. It's not very nice script at the AM> moment. READ-IO is basically the same as COPY on a BINARY/NO-WAIT port, except for the need to allocate a properly sized buffer. So you can replace you code with something like: set-modes system/ports/input [binary: true no-wait: true] data: copy system/ports/input while [content-length > length? data] [ wait system/ports/input insert tail data copy system/ports/input ] (WARNING: not tested) Regards, Gabriele. -- Gabriele Santilli <[g--santilli--tiscalinet--it]> -- REBOL Programmer Amigan -- AGI L'Aquila -- REB:
