WEBGET - Browser based Curl Example
« on: May 17, 2006, 04:14:30 PM »
This example Curl program will retrieve the source HTML of the URL you submit. IE doesn't work with default security settings and the 'MIME Sniffing" feature needs to be disabled so the file attribute is used for MIME determination like the other browsers. MSDN Reference

Code: [Select]

*** getweb.bas ***

#!/usr/bin/scriba -c

INCLUDE cgi.bas
INCLUDE curl.bas

OPTION cgi$Method cgi::Post or cgi::Get

this_url = cgi::PostParam("geturl")

CURL = curl::init()
curl::option CURL,"URL",this_url
curl::option CURL,"FILE","/var/www/vhosts/"
curl::perform CURL
curl::finish CURL

cgi::Header 302,""
PRINT "Location: /pagedump.txt\n"


*** curl.html ***
