[REBOL] Re: hook while downloading from html port

From: antonr:lexicon at: 15-Apr-2004 17:51

Scott, I think you are a bit negative about transfer rates. :) Surely there is a way. Here also, is an easier way to save the scheme: write clipboard:// join {rebol [] system/schemes/http:} mold system/schemes/http Now open your favourite editor, paste into a new file and save. Uh oh, now I'm into it... Search for "read:". You have found the read function. Now add a line after the "net-utils/net-log" line: print join "bytes: " [port/state/num " at " now/time/precise] Save the file and do it. Then test the change:
>> read
connecting to: bytes: 2048 at 17:39:47.731 bytes: 2048 at 17:39:47.741 bytes: 2048 at 17:39:47.741 bytes: 2048 at 17:39:48.332 bytes: 2048 at 17:39:48.332 bytes: 2048 at 17:39:48.332 bytes: 2048 at 17:39:48.552 == {<HTML> <HEAD> <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html;CHARSET=iso-8859-1"> <META NAME="keywords" CONTENT="REBOL, pro... With that info it's possible to make up some progress callback so you can make a display showing transfer rate. You would need to add a couple of variables to the http object, eg: total-bytes last-transfer-time and reset these at the appropriate time. Mmm.. while I'm here I can see the /custom refinement. If I ever forget the custom refinement dialect I can look here in the source. Anton.
