Getting SprintPCS Vision pictures

 [1/5] from: greggirwin::mindspring::com at: 6-Sep-2002 14:00

OK, so the whole PCS Vision thing is relatively new, but you guys are way ahead of the curve, so I'll ask anyway. Does anyone know how to get pictures sent from a SprintPCS Vision phone via REBOL? Here's the lowdown, which may be something standard you all know how to do, but I'm not a web guy, so I don't. What happens is that you get an email containing a link like this: Now, that page is a jsp, and the link to the actual picture on the page points to something like this: <img src=";jsessionid=baa_ODq8w 3AnoD?machineid=1&border=2,255,255,255,1,0,0,0,0" !width="480" !height="360" alt="" border="0"> At least that's what I think the relevant part is. So, is it possible to get at the picture with something like that? If I try to just READ it, I get Server response: HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error , which may be an issue with an invalid session ID or something I suppose, but since this isn't my area, I really don't know. Any thoughts or ideas would be welcome. Thanks! --Gregg

Hi Gregg, On Friday, September 6, 2002, 10:00:36 PM, you wrote: GI> At least that's what I think the relevant part is. So, is it possible to get GI> at the picture with something like that? I was able to, by simply escaping that ";" to %3B. If you use TO-URL on the string this should not be needed... The only needed parameter is the session id, machineid and border are not needed (it worked for me without them).

Hi Gregg, I tried this... test: read/binary to-url;jsessionid=baaarmm6XXgeEH?machineid=2&border=2 ,255,255,255,1,0,0,0,0 after having first logged on using my browser. test2: load test view/new layout [ image test2 ] and that worked fine. If you want to get it from the Rebol console only, then I'm guessing you have to send the session cookie back to them. They send down two cookies. HTH -- Graham Chiu

Re: Getting SprintPCS Vision pictures Greg, The problem seems to be that REBOL does not understand that the values form part of the URL for Sprinting. If you surround the url with quotes then force it back to a url you can retrieve your picture. url: ";jsessionid=aaa-EtKM86LNWl?machineid=2&border=2,255,255,255,1,0,0, 0,0" img: load to-url url view layout [image img] which I guess you could make into: view layout [image load to-url ";jsessionid=aaa-EtKM86LNWl?machineid=2&border=2,255,255,255,1,0,0,0,0"]

Thanks to all! I was hoping it was some simple "web" thing I just didn't know to look for. --Gregg
