[REBOL] Re: webserver.r

From: chrismorency:videotron:ca at: 15-Jul-2001 1:04

Hi, I contacted RT about this issue and I thought they would forward my feedback to Cal, since I didn't know if Cal was still around (been busy on a rebol project of my own, and haven't been reading the mailling list posts). Anyway, here are the the issues regarding webserver.r and webserv.r posted to RT feedback... the case related to your problem is in the second part related to webserv.r this was with version 0.9 of webserv.r if I remember correctly. best, Chris REBOL Support
> webserver.r > When the micro-web-server is running, you open a browser and enter the
address of the server, once you get the page, reload the page several time by clicking on the reload button of the browser... but don't wait, click really fast... now... it is suppose to crash... AFAIK here is the reason :
> excerpts from the code currently in the library : > http-port: first wait listen-port > clear buffer > while [not empty? request: first http-port][ > repend buffer [request newline] > ] > > now by repeating requests, the http-port has a request, but it is empty,
therefore when you do [ not empty? request: first http-port ], it crash because the series is empty... hence cannot do first... but I may be wrong... the not empty? only checks for request... but it has already crash
> webserv.r (contact Cal Dixon) > default-type doesn't seem to be assign properly, so with browser like IE
5.5 the mime-type is not set properly and the browser ask to download the html file instead of displaying it !!! adding the following in the content-type list seems to do the trick but it's not consistent with the default-type declaration which is then initiated for nothing :
