InetGet maximun file size

4 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if InetGet has a maximum file size it can download? I see it fail from time to time and the only correlation I have come up with is that it has to do with large zip files, and so I'm postulating that InetGet has some sort of file size limit. What is the mechanism for buffering the file as its being downloaded?

Thanks,

Ken

I don't know of any maximum file size for InetGet(). But that's not saying much.

But what file size do you have in mind where InetGet() starts to fail ?

And why do you think its InetGet() that has failed instead of something else failing ? (Like the internet connection with the server that's sending the file.)

Buffering: Don't know about that. Don't think it matters at this point either.

(Relevant code part's of your InitGet() handling might be a good idea to. Just so its at least possible (for others mind you) to rule out possible user-coding errors. (Yea, I know. 'Only fails sometimes'))

Not sure if it relates, but search on tcp large files. To make TCPsend work for large files, you have to break them up into 4k or 8k chunks. A fellow called "Larry" has some sample source code for this.

Erm ... better try 'LarryDalooza' instead of 'Larry', As the latter account seems to had a full posts cleanup.
