Http Line Length

Author Message
Robert Edwards 03/29/2006 07:02 am
I`ve encountered more than one site where the length of the line is BIG and Offline Exloprer stops at some pre-set length. If I look at the page in IE then use the "View, Source" either with notepad or LightPad I can see the source and it appears that the author uses either little or no line wrapping or some tool that removes the enter keys.

When I view these pages with Offline Explorer Pro these pages appear to be incomplete (line turncated).

Any ideas???

Thanks

Can you please see if your Speed limit (either on Toolbar or Download | Speed in the main menu) is set to High (i.e. - no limits). Some servers do not like limiting speed and can truncate files download in the middle.

I`ll set the speed to background and see if that makes a difference.

But when I looked at the source in LightPad the line was longer than 1024 chars.
I then began to edit the line by hitting the enter key (at proper places, I know html
coding) and each new line was still longer than 1024 chars.

Does Offline Explorer Pro have a line buffer limit or does it read in and then parse
the HTML?

Thanks

Robert, please use the High speed (with no limits). There is no buffer limit in Offline Explorer. It gets the file size and allocates the desired amount of memory to parse files.

I set the speed to high, connections to 4, delay to 2, and no limit on download
speed and still the same thing. Lines are being chopped off.

I was reading the other messages and say the new download
http://www.metaproducts.com/download/betas/oep1174.zip
and that seemed to fix the problem on the www.analogx.com site. I`ll try the
other site I was having a problem with.

THANKS :)

But does the problem still occurs with the newest version? I am a bit confused after reading your last two messages. :-)

No, the problem seems fixed. THANKS !

FYI - When I posted to the thread the forum system gave me an error message.
See how the date/time are not in order. I think that where the confusion is.
Again thanks for the fix. GREAT PROGRAM !
