[REBOL] Re: Download a whole website

Hi, Oldes, From: "RebOldes"

Unfortunately, I do not believe that http protocol gives a way of knowing the target in this case. It is the server software that fills in a default name, such as "index.html" or default.htm" if only given a directory path, such as http://localhost/ . Warning, I am not an expert on this topic, but as a confirmation I have experimented to verify that browser clients (including REBOL) do not receive this information automatically in the protocol header. I believe that an exception to this will be if the reference is *forwarded* to a fully qualified target (like hotmail). In this case, then embedded in the http scheme is a local variable named target that contains the path and file. With a hacked version of the http scheme, this information can be used, if needed.

I am unsure what you are asking. Do you mean how to create a static file name for what is a dynamically created web page? I would be tempted to take a shortcut, unless I really needed to preserve the embeded data in the url. Something like: my-url: split-url: split-path my-url new-file-name: to-file join checksum split-url/2 ".html" ;=====yielding %11808560.html It is just a thought. Hope I've helped. --Scott Jones
