Content Encoding : a libwww bug?
I am working on a browser based on libwww-5.0.
This would be a vrml browser, but this is of little concern.
I have the following problem.
I've created an HTStream that can ungzip data.
I've registered it as a content-decoder.
When I'm reading data from an HTTP server, everything comes out fine.
When I'm reading data from a file, my decoder stream is not inserted
into the stream stack.
Trace shows that libwww knows both content-type and
content-encoding but nevertheless doesn't plug my strem in. It sez:
With http:// access:
MIME header. Content-type: x-world/x-vrml
MIME header. Content-encoding: x-gzip
Building.... C-T stack from x-world/x-vrml to www/present
Building.... C-E stack
With file:/ access:
Get Binding. Look for 'wrl' Found!
Get Binding. Look for 'gz' Found!
Get Binding. Result for '/foo.wrl.gz' is: type='world/vrml',
encoding='gzip', cte='unknown', language='unknown' with quality 1.00
(no interesting messages thereafter)
The question is: is it me, or it's the bug in libwww?
