[REBOL] Re: - Old Hippy Needs Help With Clouds

From: cyphre:volny:cz at: 4-Jun-2001 10:58

Hello Hippy ;-) REBOL [] if not exists? %pictures/ [ make-dir %pictures/ ] forever [ page: read Composite&x =0&y=0&map=none&zoom=1&width=1000&height=500&quality=100 parse page [thru "SRC=^"/" copy pic-path to "^" WIDTH" to end] write/binary join %pictures/ to-file last parse pic-path "/" read join to-url pic-path wait 00:30:00 ] this script creates directory pictures in place where is executed and save images after 30 mins. I hope it will work but if you have any problems with that let me know i've written it in a few minutes and not tested much) Have fun, Cyphre ----- Original Message ----- From: Jimbo <[jimbo--sc--starcat--ne--jp]> To: <[rebol-list--rebol--com]> Sent: Monday, June 04, 2001 9:32 AM Subject: [REBOL] - Old Hippy Needs Help With Clouds

pretty sure this is doable but I haven't looked at it again since and feel a bit lost... Sorry if this has already been discussed here. Is there some example code I could look at that would do this from a URL like:
> Composite&x =0&y=0&map=none&zoom=1&width=1000&height=500&quality=100
