Halting a download

 [1/2] from: carl::cybercraft::co::nz at: 20-May-2001 15:04

Is there any way to halt a file-loading in REBOL once it's started? I'm thinking specifically of downloading large files from the Net and want to be able to have a View button to click on to abort the load. No doubt something could be worked out using a port and 'feel and loading the file incrementally, but I'm sure this would be slow. Is there a better way? -- Carl Read [carl--cybercraft--co--nz]

Hi Carl, Have a look at the source for 'request-download for a way to do this. Cheers Allen K
