[REBOL] Re: HTTP GET problem

From: brett:codeconscious at: 17-Mar-2004 11:45

Hi Tom,

Your server looks like it is returning a simple-reponse which has no response headers: From rfc 1945: A Simple-Response should only be sent in response to an HTTP/0.9 Simple-Request or if the server only supports the more limited HTTP/0.9 protocol. If a client sends an HTTP/1.0 Full-Request and receives a response that does not begin with a Status-Line, it should assume that the response is a Simple-Response and parse it accordingly. Note that the Simple-Response consists only of the entity body and is terminated by the server closing the connection. It looks to me like the REBOL http scheme expects to see a Status response header, so perhaps REBOL is not conforming with http in this case. Regards, Brett.
