Re: pulling HTTP status code out of response

Sorry for the delay in my response. This does work after was a user
error on my part.

I do have another question about retrieving information from the header,
though. Here is an example header I received from a data source internal to the
company I work for:
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Tue, 28 Jan 2003 16:54:27 GMT
Server: WebLogic WebLogic Server 6.1 SP4 11/08/2002 21:50:43 #221641
Content-Length: 2368
Content-Type: application/octet-stream
X-More-Data: N
X-Data-Source: ESI
X-Total-Records: 5
Connection: Close

I need to access the X-Total-Records field, which appears to be a field
created/used by the particular data source I am accessing. Is there a way in
curl to access that type of header information (application specific)?

Thank you,
Jami Amore
