open pop port

 [1/5] from: louisaturk:coxinet at: 16-May-2003 1:18

Hi rebols, ** Access Error: Cannot connect to coxinet ** Where: open-proto ** Near: open pop://[username--coxinet]:[passoword--pop--coxmail--com] The problem is that cox requires the complete email address for user ID. I thought I conquered this problem before, but... How do I fix this? Louis

very simply - dilema between practical usability and standards. I remember Holger stating that using @ char for username is not valid. I would prefer if RT would act in a more practical way and such char was allowed in a parser, to prevent problems as yours ... add following lines into your user.r file and you are done: net-utils/url-parser/user-char: union net-utils/url-parser/user-char make bitset! #"@" ; ... and if you want to allow # char to be used in path part net-utils/url-parser/path-char: union net-utils/url-parser/path-char make bitset! #"#" hopet-this-helps, cheers, -pekr-

Hi Louis, to ideas spring to my mind - escape the first #"@" by %40 (I'm not sure if this works) open pop://username%40coxinet:[passoword--pop--coxmail--com] - use a port block: open [ scheme: 'pop user: "[username--coxinet]" pass: "passoword" url: "] I hope that helps, Ingo Louis A. Turk wrote:

Petr, Ingo, and Gabriele, Many thanks. I remember now that Graham once showed me how to do this also. So, thanks to him also. Louis At 09:45 AM 5/16/2003 +0200, you wrote:
