Circular forwarding, revisited

 [1/3] from: chalz::earthlink::net at: 2-Dec-2002 23:35

Okay, I've just bit the bullet and accepted that I can't force REBOL to allow circular forwarding. But, how about this:
>> url:$l/jjph1853
>> print read url
connecting to: connecting to: ** User Error: Error. Target url: could not be retrieved. Circular forwarding detected ** Near: print read url
REBOL is obviously able to retrieve the new target URL. So, how can I retrieve it and use it, without incurring the error penalty?

You could try this: port: open url probe port Anton.

Graham convinced me to use a beta version, so I'm running now, and there's no circular forwarding problem. Otherwise, I'd get circular forwarding with that, too. ;) Though, I'd still like to know the resultant URL somehow. Anyone got something easier than this? .... Nevermind, I found I can do: port: open url port/url close port ... I'm willing to bet it doesn't get much cleaner than that? Thanks everyone!! --Charles
