[REBOL] Read

From: gchiu:compkarori at: 18-Nov-2000 12:33

In the old days, Rebol's read used to return the http headers, but now it is smart and strips them out. Wouldn't it be nice if there were a refinement to elect not to strip them out? Or better still, factor 'read' out rather than have it defined as a primitive so we could do this ourselves? And now my question. I can use read to read in some web pages, and it does it correctly. But if I open the port directly to read the page, it doesn't always work. Does 'read' have extra smarts in it? -- Graham Chiu
