Software News   Software News : Wget 1.12 (Rev#2) for AmigaOS
   posted by diegocr on 13-Jul-2010 20:31:07 (1987 reads)
WGET, The well known program for retrieving files using HTTP, HTTPS and FTP, has been updated - This is a second revision for the 1.12 release including the following changes:

$Id: ChangeLog.Amiga,v 1.6 2010/06/12 20:17:41 diegocr Exp $

2010-07-12 Wget 1.12 - Revision #2

* src/connect.c: Fixed connect_to_ip() function to
report correct message on failed connections.

* src/utils.c: Changed the following functions to do things
on an amiga-only way using dos.library equivalents: suffix(),
determine_screen_width(), xsleep(), make_directory(),

* src/host.c: Reworked gethostbyname_with_timeout() to directly
handle our TCP/IP Stack's gethostbyname() disabling C linklib
SIGINT signal in the meanwhile and using Exec's way...

* src/openssl.c: Changed close() by CloseSocket()..

* src/log.c: avoid fclose() over stderr

* OS3 Build Compiled using OpenSSL 1.0.0a (Rev#2)

* Fixed CTRL+C handling under OS4 - Thanks to Corto for the fix!

I love using wget and curl in UNIX and Linux to scrape websites...

But also they are useful for safe/reliable downloading... e.g. you can pause and resume downloads and it actually works... unlike 99% of other programs that offer to do the same

Thanks a lot for this update!

The previous OS4 version was crashing with Ctrl-C and 1.9.x worked but was reporting wrong speed.

Thanks for this version. Downloaded and will try it out later. Thanks for fixing the CTRL+C under OS4. I just hated that problem :)

was reporting wrong speed.

I've found (and fixed) "by accident" this issue is caused by a "wrong" (or not 100% compliant) gettimeofday() implementation on our C linklib(s)..

Edit: erm, that was really fixed on the os4 build? checking sources now the change i did was for os3 (libnix) only...

edit2: you're welcome all ;)
