so i need to get a .json file and save it as text
without using shell and firefox.
is there a freeware dll for internet file operations?

UPDATE>>>
tried vdsinet.dll NET HTTP, DOWNLOAD,
but all i get is a bad file , using same address in firefox
correct file is displayed ??? any clues ?

short of that, any ideas how to save the file after its loaded
in firefox? without window send !!!


thanks

Code:

list create,1,
external vdsinet.dll,Public Freeware Key|90257236
rem NET HTTP, DOWNLOAD, "http://api.wunderground.com/api/<mykey>/conditions/q/WA/pws:KWALANGL5.json","F:\weather\weatherdata.txt"

Try the VDSIPP library. You may need to set the user-agent to something like Firefox, Internet Explorer if the webserver is trying to detect which browser is loading it. Or the server you are connecting to is configured to serve pages with compression.

If you have VDS6 you can just use File Copy. It supports getting from HTTP. It will not work on HTTPS, but I use File Copy a lot for internet files.

File Copy, "http://api.wunderground.com/api/<mykey>/conditions/q/WA/pws:KWALANGL5.json","F:\weather\weatherdata.txt"

EDIT: Never mind, I see you are using 4.5. Sorry

thanks for the response ....

after downloading seems if you open the .json file with the word- rtf editor save it as a text file and its nicely formatted..
but if its straight to a ascii file or into VDS lists
it doesn't see the CR and its just a stream of text .

EDIT: this works to put back in the CR's in the text file
Julian thanks for that @text() function!!

%z = @curdir()
list create,1
list loadfile,1, %z\weatherdata.json
%%cleanfile = @text(1)
rem info %%cleanfile
list savefile,1,%z\weatherdata_test1.txt
list close,1
