[REBOL] redirected URLs

From: richard-boyd:worldnet:att at: 3-Jul-2002 8:25

I would like to dynamically access info about graphics on a web page. So I surf to a web page and parse on {<img src="} ... then append the path in order to access graphic info. PROBLEM: How do you get the "path" when it is redirected. For example, I surf to ... [1] which is redirected to ... [2] I can use "split-path" to extract the path from this URL ... IF I knew what this redirected (second) URL was. If I use the first URL and append it to the graphic file name ... then I get an error because the graphic is not found on that page. Is there a way to get the "address" of a webpage even though it has been redirected? Thanx. -richard-
