If you're not using MS Internet Explorer (MSIE) browsers, you can specify a name in the headers, using the Content-Disposition header, like this: print rejoin [ "Content-Disposition: attachment; " {filename="} form last split-path File #"^"" ] But if you're using MSIE, you've got a problem as MS doesn't understand Content-Disposition as per specifications. Instead, MSIE uses the first file name in the URL to name the file! There's some work arounds that can be done to overcome this, such as renaming one's CGI to be the same as a directory, (but I haven't managed to make this work yet).
