How to handle a HTTP Request with gzip, deflate headers

10 posts in this topic

Hi!

Please, I need your help to handle decompression html page. Here is my code

if I send the following to in my request

$oHTTP = ObjCreate("winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1")
$oHTTP.Open("GET", "http://www.stylephreak.com/index.php/archives/2004/08/standard-forms/")

[b]$oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("Accept-Encoding", "gzip,deflate")[/b] ; to get a compressed html page

$oHTTP.Send()

And then the Content-Encoding header in the response is 'gzip' or

'deflate'. How can I uncompress the content?

thinks a lot

I suppose you're looking for something more elegant than 1) save the response to a file, 2) inflate the file with gunzip?

o? They seemed to resolve exactly what you asked in the thread (using perl but same concept)

http://coding.derkeiler.com/Archive/Perl/c...04-12/0625.html

or is this not applicable?

the solution is given for perl with an embeded perl decompression library. Autoit have not a similar library

this solution needs a lot of disk access specially when you send many httprequest

Hi, I am interested in this too. Did you ever find a good solution? thanks.

Ok, I have a solution.

First, I modified InetGet (or _InetGetPro) so that it could retreive binary data

Then, I recompiled zlib.dll (zlib 1.2.3) so that the uncompress export could accept a variable zMode, which specifies gzip or zlib compressed data.

After amking the proper dll data structures, it's not too hard to do. Included in the zip file is the modified _InetGetPro and zlib1.dll, with header info.

Also, perhaps most importantly, I included a working example showing pure memory gzip http download and decompression, and a file gzip access example.

I can't post this in the example scripts section for some reason, it says I'm not allowed.. so here it is:

gzip_binary_InetGet.zip

Enjoy, and I appreciate your feedback.

Hmm i can't get it to work :) It crashes and gives an error at:

INetPro.au3 (194) : ==> Subscript used with non-Array variable.:

ElseIf $ai_ICU[0] = 0 Then

ElseIf $ai_ICU^ ERROR

Anyone know if there is a better solution or a resubmit of the zip file? The URL no longer works ;\
