Too true mate.

Now my next bit of pissing about.
Before writing it (if I can find the gumption).
Don't think this is in Moriarty, as the Talis Platform is, of course, well-behaved.

I run cURL, using an amended version of what was described before (as at the end of this message).

So now I need to deal with what comes back.
I actually hand it over to rapper, so would sort of like to know what the data is to improve the reliability by setting the rapper type parameter.
I am trying to avoid looking inside the file, although am happy to if someone can provide the code :-).
The Content-Type is unreliable Ė for example could (is likely to) be text/plain for a turtle file that someone has put on a standard web server.
So it is the usual problem of messing about with extensions, modified by extra information from the Content-Type.
Of course we need to worry about the final URL (curl_getinfo($ch)['url']), possibly as well as the requesting URI, as that might be where there is an extension.
So perhaps something that sets the Content-Type in curl_getinfo($ch) as best it can?

Any offers? (Pretty please!)
And maybe we can feed back to Moriarty, PEAR, etc, unless already there and I missed it.

On another worry, If the requesting URI does a 302 to a new URI, which then does 303, it looks an interesting challenge to capture the new URI as expected. I donít intend to do this at the moment, but if anyone has done that, ...


PHP much preferred.

Fetching code:
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $_REQUEST['uri']);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, "http://void.rkbexplorer.com/ submission agent 1.0");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array("Accept: application/rdf+xml, text/n3, text/rdf+n3, text/turtle, application/x-turtle, application/turtle, text/plain"));
$data = curl_exec($ch);
$info = curl_getinfo($ch);
