Get the HTML response from cURL / StdOutRead with a DLL (libcurl)

Recommended Posts


I'm using to upload a file to a server. After the upload the server returns a URL to that file. My program needs to give that URL to the user.

libcURL is working fine and the upload is successful, and the HTML response needed is output to scite's console. I need the information put into the console to be stored in a variable, though, and I can't figure it out.

I think I need to use stdout or stdread to do this. I have used these before when using a run() command but this library is using a dll (and is much cleaner than my previous version which used run commands).

How do I record the output buffer of a DLL? (or whatever stdout is called).

This attachment is what I'm testing it with, just open "playground.au3" and run it. It should spit a bunch of information to the console. The top listing of variables is all from curl_getdata(), the part with brackets and arrows is from my web server. I need the second part to be put into a variable.

PS: The cURL process ID is stored as $__hcurl_process

seangriffin's manages to accomplish this, it looks like the key is to use "DllCallbackRegister". I'm trying to plug this in to smartee's UDF but the two UDF's look like completely different languages. I don't think I will be able to figure this out on my own, but I'm going to keep trying.

EDIT: You need to move the DLL's to the same folder as playground.au3, and edit "libcURL.au3" and change the #include to quotes instead of brackets. I packed it wrong.

Um, i don't see any attachment ;)

Here's a little demo showing how to save to a variable

#include <libcURL.au3>

Global $bMyData = Binary("")


Func _urlget($sURL)

    Local $curl_handle = _curl_easy_init()

    If ($curl_handle) Then

        Local $tCURLSTRUCT_URL = DllStructCreate("char[" & StringLen($sURL) + 1 & "]")
        DllStructSetData($tCURLSTRUCT_URL, 1, $sURL)
        _curl_easy_setopt($curl_handle, $CURLOPT_URL, DllStructGetPtr($tCURLSTRUCT_URL))

        _curl_easy_setopt($curl_handle, $CURLOPT_VERBOSE, 0)

        _curl_easy_setopt($curl_handle, $CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1)

        _curl_easy_setopt($curl_handle, $CURLOPT_NOPROGRESS, 1)

        Local $handle = DllCallbackRegister("_my_vwrite", "uint:cdecl", "ptr;uint;uint;ptr")
        _curl_easy_setopt($curl_handle, $CURLOPT_WRITEFUNCTION, DllCallbackGetPtr($handle))


EndFunc   ;==>_urlget

Func _my_vwrite($buffer, $size, $nmemb, $stream)
    Local $vData = DllStructCreate("byte[" & $size * $nmemb & "]", $buffer)
    $bMyData &= DllStructGetData($vData, 1)
    Return $size * $nmemb
EndFunc   ;==>_my_vwrite

Also you may want to take a look at the example for _curl_easy_setopt in the help-file, it shows how to save the output directly to a file.

Hope this helps :)

Weird, the upload must not have gone through.

It doesn't matter though, that example you posted does exactly what I needed.

      Hi All
      i am currently trying to add a function to my project that can send SMS, i have gone with Twilio for the sms service that use a REST API.
      I have never worked with an API before, and could use some help.
      I can get my function working with using cURL.exe and copy past command from the website with the following code. And thats great unfortunately i am have issue with character like æøå when sending a SMS appears like a box or ?. this does not happen if i do it from the website so it looks like a Unicode issue in curl.exe.
      I have done some searching on the forum and understand that i should be able to implement this curl command with the WinHTTP UDF from @trancexx so i don't need a third part exe and it might fix my charater issue.
      Unfortunately i really don't understand how i am to change curl commands to the WinHTTP and i was hoping some good maybe give me an example i could learn from.
      Thanks in advanced
      i have removed the AuthToken number from the script.
      _SendSMS("00000000","SomeOne","SMS body info") Func _SendSMS($SendTo,$SendFrom,$Msgtxt) $AccountSID = "ACbb765b3180d5938229eff8b8f63ed1bc" $AuthToken = "Auth Token number" $Data = '"https://api.twilio.com/2010-04-01/Accounts/'&$AccountSID&'/Messages.json"'& _ '-X POST \ --data-urlencode "To=+45'&$SendTo&'" \ --data-urlencode "From='&$SendFrom&'" \ --data-urlencode "Body='&$Msgtxt&'" \ -u '&$AccountSID&':'&$AuthToken&'' ShellExecute(@ScriptDir&"\curl.exe","-k "&$Data) ;~ curl 'https://api.twilio.com/2010-04-01/Accounts/ACbb765b3180d5938229eff8b8f63ed1bc/Messages.json' -X POST \ ;~ --data-urlencode 'To=+4500000000' \ ;~ --data-urlencode 'From=Reception' \ ;~ --data-urlencode 'Body=Test Body' \ ;~ -u ACbb765b3180d5938229eff8b8f63ed1bc:[AuthToken] EndFunc

      Hello friends, i have a working curl command that show informations about my account on binance.com, but_it dont work with autoit code without curl.exe.
      I want to do it without curl, because the whole process much Slower_ with StdoutRead (I want get the response in variable.)
      My Curl command in Autoit:
      This 2 are works, but_ i would like to do it without curl.exe
      $apikey="XYZ" sCommand = @ScriptDir & '\curl.exe -k -H "X-MBX-APIKEY: ' & $apikey & '" -X GET "https://api.binance.com/api/v3/account?' & $request the same in .bat  file

      I tried many variations, this is the latest... I cant get the same response.
      curl $error message (I changed ): {"code":-2015,"msg":"Invalid API-key, IP, or permissions for action."}

      This baby can do almost any language! I found Gleany on this site and set it up on a fresh win10 install. all i would need to do to make it build an exe of the search files app we discovered is the .NET Target Framework download to build 100 % but the exe works and generates! You also need to add the path the the version of csc.exe that you want to run. MSBuild is part of .NET and can read your .csproj file.
      YOU can develop .NET OR C/C++ on this baby!
      Super lightweight (fit for crappy laptops), and you can use any dev compilers you wish, Ming, MS, etc, whatever.
      To use the build, you need to open the csproj file, else, to check your syntax it can compile individual files as well. The warning are because I do not have the .NET 4.6 Targeting Pack installed... LOL, and I could get rid of the Core warning, yes, I did not want to build a .NET Core.dll I wanted a live x64 exe! Told you MSBUILD could handle .CSPROJ, .VBPROJ, and all others Microsoft. Don't let Visual Code or Visual Studio slow you down, although, this works with Visual Code as well but there is only debugging in CORE.DLL projects
