Great, given that the server I am talking to does not send the terminating
character, how do I use curl with this server. I am actually interested in
using lib curl rather than the command line tool, so any solution there
would help as well. I tried changing the code to ignore the illegal hex
error, and I received a response size error (off by 14 bytes), which I
already ignore in some of my code. Since I don't have much knowledge on
chunky responses, I'm unsure if ignoring the error is a safe way to resolve
the problem, I'm afraid that it may not be.

Thanks for your assistance thus far, and any additional suggestions you can
provide,
Brad
