JS to download file?


    May 19 2006 | 7:50 pm
    I'm trying to make a patch which can download a file from a URL. I DONT have JITTER so i was thinking JS could do it - problem is i know nothing about JS. Could someone let me know if it's possible / how to do it?
    thanks,
    John.

      you can use the shell external and the 'curl' program or the 'wget' program to download files through a command line interface. curl for the win.

      Hi There, I was wondering if there were any good tutorials, aside from what ships with the product, on how to work with JavaScript in MAX?
      Sorry if this is a dumb question, I am new to the product.

      Thanks Vade,
      but I was hoping there was a way to do this with the js or mxj objects?
      Anyone else?
      thanks, j

      Thanks for that f.e. - i'm still sufficiently stupid regarding java for it to completely confuse me though.
      If anyone has a bit of time to explain to me how to get this to work i'd appreciate it greatly.
      thanks,
      john.

      You mean, explain everything or just a few ? Come on, john burton, take a Java tutorial on you left hand, and the Writing Java Externals manual on your right ! What you got on this link is an already working class. So, what you have to do is to adapt it to your needs : like a seperate class you'll call from your Java external, or integrated in/as a Java external. So better tell us what's your knowledge regarding Java for us to help ;-)

      I'm a complete newbie to Java, i find it a but confusing at the moment - finding the 'java-doc' folder helped a little. Right now i don't have time to devote to learning it so i'll put it aside.
      Thanks to those who made suggestions - unless anyone has a really easy way of downloading a file from a URL i'll move along.

      hi john, i have a bunch of java classesfor downloading files from a URL, audio files (aif or mp3) directly from a URL into an MSP buffer as well as ftp download/upload.
      i missed the beginning of this thread so i'm not sure what you want exactly but it's probably possible with little/no modification to my stuff. get in touch if.
      yours, a
