Hi All, following the excellent advice found on this list a while back,
I've been experimenting with the shell "curl" stuff to access an https
Here's the problem: using the exact same URL,
A: "https://" etc typed into a browser window - no problem
B: curl "https://" etc. typed into the Terminal app in OSX - no problem
C: From a rev script using shell - ie. put shell("curl" && quote &
"https://" etc & quote) into fld 1 -
about 3k of the 30 odd k of html arrives in fld 1, last line ending
with "Unexpected Error 1".
Perhaps a character set problem? I'm stumped, so any help would be much
PS. I'm not trying to crack into a banks web-site or anything, I'm
simply trying to download the freely displayed odds from an on-line
