Hello,

I am a ruby newbie. When I use the attached script, the file downloaded 
over a slow link is always incomplete. I can successfully download a 
much larger file over a fast link.

I use ethereal to capture the communication. It's the client which 
initials the disconnection by first sending a FIN then followed by 
several RSTs.

Any ideas? Thanks for helping!

#!/usr/bin/env ruby
require 'http-access2'

def fetch(url, filename)
   proxy = ENV['HTTP_PROXY']
   clnt = HTTPAccess2::Client.new(proxy)

   begin
     target = url
     clnt.reset(target)
     result = clnt.get(target)
   rescue SystemCallError
     return "Connection Error"
   end

   if result.contenttype != "application/pdf"
     return "can't get pdf!"
   else
     f = File.new(filename, File::CREAT|File::RDWR|File::TRUNC, 0644)
     f.puts result.content
     f.close
   end
   "Success"
end

puts fetch(ARGV.shift, ARGV.shift)
