download progress

 [1/4] from: balayo:mindspring at: 29-Sep-2000 20:17

Hey list,I don't suppose anyone has made any kind of "progress indicator" for downloads, have they? If I'm fetching a large file, I would kind of like to see how much is left. wget does this pretty well. has anyone done this? -- Turn your computer off. Go outside. -tom

In View you can use request-download USAGE: REQUEST-DOWNLOAD file DESCRIPTION: Request a file download from the net. Show progress. Return none on error. REQUEST-DOWNLOAD is a function value. ARGUMENTS: file -- (Type: url) e.g write/binary %polarcap.jpg request-download or view layout [image load request-download] Cheers, Allen K

I suppose you are searching fot a text-mode indicator? REBOL/View already has a graphical progress-indicator! If you're clever you can take a deeper look at the function request-download , replacing the graphical parts through a textual one. Regards Jochen
