[REBOL] Re: Might as well ask..

Hi, Andy, From: "Andy Finkel"

I clearly am suffering from flatulence of the brain. After sending my last submission stemming from Petr, I recalled doing something with Petr *last* year along these lines, that time using *skip* but on a http network connection. Here was the snippet (still works): from-port: open/direct to-port: open/direct %//windows/desktop/log.txt from-port: skip from-port 8000 ;skip first 8000 bytes ;get 1000 byte chunks from file while [data: copy/part from-port 1000][append to-port data] close from-port close to-port Here was the email:

Shouldn't be too hard (he says with a great deal of bravado), but I have not had the need to do this, per se. If the previously mentioned solutions don't serve your needs (like you *really* need tcp, and want to avoid http) and no one offers a solution, I could probably whip one up. I'm out of time right now, but if no sno answers come forward, I'll check into it later today. --Scott Jones
