[REBOL] reading https web page

From: wdurden::sapphirebay::com at: 1-Feb-2003 11:40

Hello all! I have combed the libraries but couldn't find an example such that I could read an HTTPS url. Can this be done with rebol core? I have no difficulty grabbing a standard URL but I apparently do not know enough about the underlying standards to intelligently piece together the process for an HTTPS page with username and password. Thank you for your assistance. Additionally, in case it may be of benefit to anyone, I am including a script below that grabs a realtime quote for symbols in a list every two minutes and appends it to a text data file. It recovers from a network error by relaunching itself. REBOL [ Title: "Downloads REAL TIME QUOTES" File: %realtimequoteGrabber.r Date: 21-JAN-2003 Purpose: "Fetch REAL TIME QUOTE" Category: [] ] comment { a correct url that gets MSFT data is: } firstpart: symbols:[ amat msft intc amzn sunw ] theFile: %data/ if error? try [ forever[ if ((now/time > 09:30:00) and (now/time < 16:01:00))[ foreach word symbols[ print join "Getting data for " word page: read join firstpart word parse page [thru <NOBR> copy mydata to </NOBR>] print join now/time [" " mydata] write/append join theFile [word "2.txt"] join now/time [" " mydata "^/"] ] wait 00:02:00 ] ] ][ wait 00:00:30 do %realtimequoteGrabber.r]
