The hosting service for my site, provides logs in a html format... I have Rebol routines to parse the data into something more reasonable, but the problem is now that after my site redesign, the average HTML form log is about 300kb in size. Something I feel is a little excessive. I realise I could redesign my site again, but I was hoping to have a CGI script that would read the log compress it and return the compressed results. Which would be something like 20k. Much more useable. My problem then of course is security. How do I get the CGI script to access a web page that requires authorisation? I currently get the logs using a rebol script that reads a CGI page with authorisation. Hoping for a tutorial here or better alternatives. Thanks for your time.
