SYNOPSIS

http-get url [output-file] [:proxy=name] [:header=true] [:username=xx] [:password=xx] [:alarm=seconds] [:post=filename] [:cookie=value] [:redirect=true] [:check-status=false] [:host=true]

DESCRIPTION

http-get is a simple http command-client which demonstrates the use of siod socket and regular expression capabilities.

    COMMAND LINE OPTIONS

:proxy=XXXXX
  The XXXXX is the name of the proxy server followed by a colon and a port number.
:header=XXXXX
  The XXXXX if equal to true causes the http headers to be output along with the content. If equal to only causes only the http header to be output.
:username=XXXXX
  The XXXXXX is the plain text username to transmit using basic authentication.
:password=XXXXX
  The XXXXX is the plaintext password.
:post=filename
  The filename contains lines of the form keyword=value. Both the keywords and values are url encoded, and the result is transmitted to the web server as a POST of application/x-www-form-urlencoded content.
:cookie=value
  A cookie header is included with the request. If the value is true then then the set-cookie headers are used to obtain the cookie value, although the entire cookie spec is not implemented. Otherwise value is used as the value of the cookie header.

:redirect=value
  If value is true (default) then redirections are handled by a recursive call to http-get.

:check-status=false
  If value is true then before storing then an error exit status is returned if the http response status is not of the form 2xx, in which case no content data is stored in the output file.

:host=value
  If value is true (default) then an http 1.1 style "Host:" header is sent. If false then none is sent. Otherwise the value specified is used as the host header.
