HTTP question.

 [1/4] from: pwoodward::cncdsl::com at: 27-Mar-2002 16:56

Hi - not sure if this has been covered before... Is there some way for REBOL to expose the response headers of the server when you make a get request from that server? I've been using trace/net to see what comes back, but I would prefer a more programmatic approach. Example: trace/net: true myURL: myData: read myURL Ideally I'd like to be able to see the headers the server responds with - like the mime type it claims, etc. Is there some easy way to access these values when reading a URL? - Porter Woodward

Hi Porter, You could use my http-tools stuff. do test: http-tools [] probe test make object!

Graham - thanks so much - that's perfect. Cookies, too! I'm just building something to help me analyze pages, and page responses. And this will make it much easier; much more like using an HTTP lib in another language - where a response object is returned, and one attribute of the object is the content, etc. - Porter Woodward
