[REBOL] Re: read bug?

From: carl:rebol at: 2-May-2001 0:49

I know of no such buffer limit. Generally speaking, REBOL uses expandable series for just about everything. If there is a buffer limit, then it's quite by accident somewhere, and we should track it down. Also, have you tried using read/custom with POST data as described in the manual? It allows you to keep the POST data out of the URL and put it into the body of the http packet where it belongs. Much better for large amounts of data, for example if you wanted to post an image or file or large REBOL block. The reason that CGI uses the REBOL CGI object with all of its fields is to make it similar to standard CGI interface found on most systems. CGI all around is generally a kludge from the start. This is not unique to REBOL. It was added as an afterthought to http. -Carl
