  Do you have HTRequest_setOutputFormat() after HTRequest_new()?  If you do
not have, You still get Null String back from HTPostAnchorToChunk().

	/* Create a request */
	request = HTRequest_new();
	HTRequest_setOutputFormat(request, HTAtom_for("text/xml")

Good Luck

Subject: POST - how to retrieve the response ?? HELP !!

Hello everybody !!

I hope some of you guys can help me with this.. i'm right now able to POST a
message to a HTTP server (responses to my last question still heavily
appreciated !!) , and i'm also a receiving a response. Mostly, i'm using the
HTPostAnchor function to do this.

My question is : How can I retrieve the answer from the POST request,
without reading it from file ?? I scanned through the w3c libwww archive,
and tried the HTPostAnchorToChunk function of Aileen, but to no avail :-(.
My terminate handler always says that the chunk is null.. I'm using
asynchronous sockets, btw..

structure of the prog is like 

	printf("test %s\n", HTChunk_toCString((HTChunk *)param);

	/* more irrelevant stuff */

	HTChunk * chunk = NULL;
	HTStream *target = HTStreamToChunk(request, &chunk, 0);
	if (chunk)
		HTNetaddAfter(terminate_handler, NULL, chunk, HT_ALL,
		/* rest as in Aileen's example */

	/* set up some events and callbacks to do other stuff */

	/* Create anchors and so on.. */



am i  forgetting something ?? 
help appreciated !!

with kind regards,
Roland Bickel
