The files are on my website and I want the CGI script to provide access to them for people to download. (I thought of this as the CGI script uploading them - the wrong terminology to use, no doubt.) The reason for using a script instead of providing the files directly is I want to be able to manage the number of downloads, they being big files. This gets close to what I want... #!/usr/bin/rebol -cs REBOL [] print "Content-Type: binary/octet-stream^/" file: read/binary %path-to-file print file but of course PRINT corrupts the file and the name is the name of the script, not the file. Incidentally, the example you gave uses the read-cgi function, but it's not to be found in the link you gave. I found it here though... should anyone in the future find this thread useful. And apologies again for sending you off on the wrong track. -- Carl Read.
