read/custom and HTTP HEAD behaviour

 [1/4] from: jmalv::hotmail at: 15-Feb-2002 9:42


I am trying to query a URL with HTTP HEAD but I get the full HTTP GET instead print read/custom http://www.yahoo.com reduce ['HEAD ] or response: copy "" port: open tcp://www.yahoo.com:80 insert port rejoin [ "GET" newline "host:www.yahoo.com" newline "connection: close" newline newline ] while [ res: copy port ] [][ append response res ] close port How can I just get the HTTP HEAD without the full page ? Thanks

Use "HEAD" instead of "GET" when opening the port. ie... ---8<---
>> port: open tcp://www.rebol.com:80 >> insert port "HEAD / HTTP/1.0 ^/^/" >> while [data: copy port][prin data]
HTTP/1.1 200 OK Date: Fri, 15 Feb 2002 11:43:28 GMT Server: Apache/1.3.20 (Unix) FrontPage/4.0.4.3 Last-Modified: Wed, 13 Feb 2002 19:01:52 GMT ETag: "595d6e-351e-3c6ab820" Accept-Ranges: bytes Content-Length: 13598 Connection: close Content-Type: text/html
>> close port
---8<--- That works with rebol.com, anyway, though not with Yahoo. You may need to supply more info in Yahoo's case, or it maybe it's just because Yahoo refuses to supply just the header. But with a bit of luck, it won't be Yahoo's header you're after. (: -- Carl Read
