[REBOL] read/custom mime-multipart?

From: dvl::2scale::net at: 8-Jun-2006 12:35

Hello, this is my first posting to the list. I stumbled upon rebol when i was looking for a single-binary deployment language (why: data center automation without proper rights to do the job). rebol/core _seems_ to be nice in this solution. My background: perl, java some lisp & haskell. Im trying to post binary content to a upload servlet as mime-multipart. Actually rebol is used as a smtp local transport in 'exim', extracting the mime attachments from the incoming email (this works) and then uploading them. I found with some helpful pointers, but someone mentioned in the 'altme?' archives that this functionaliy is now part of rebol/core..... But: post-data is a properly http request (correct headers, boundary, base64 encoded binary content, etc.). I use the following call: read/custom url [ 'port post-data ] but it seems that the headers in the post-data are ignored (i see them in the post-body (via snoop), rebol does set some default headers though -- which are not the headers i need). This is more or less the behaviour which is mentioned in the HTML page above. I thought this was fixed? How to control the http-request headers? Different questions? How do i make the pop/imap/mail protocol handlers ssl/tls aware? I know how to establish a ssl/tls connection using a port, but i cant find a way to make the protocol handlers to use these sockets (ports) ... Thanx for any hint! Dirk
