Re: Can't view strange Java URL with Curl. Is it possible?

Although I only recently began to use curl and curl lib, I am having a
similar problem. I used curl to donload pages from findmymate.com. I think
I mentioned this problem on the curl mailing lists... When downloading, a
very strange space (" ") appeared in the html pages I downloaded. And the
spece got into my targeted links/info that I needed to parse. After
loosing some time with this problem (I couldn't extract the info), I was
able to find a way to get that info out...
But I just wanted to tell you guys that yes, it seems that curl is messing
with the received data...
and another problem I have to monetion here is....
I was doing:
-- get_with_curl ($nurl) } The problem is that curl crashed a few times (many times), during this loop. Fortunately, I was able to see what $i was and start over from that $i and continue. But after some pages were downloaded, the crash appeared again... and so on until I downloaded all the pages... > Thanks for that, it works kind of.
