RE: Format report using write-out

Thanks for that Alexander.

I think I had generally got the write-out options working, but I was
getting confused because I was outputting the whole curl output to a
file e.g.:

curl -w "%{time_total}\n" -L
http://NotesServer/database.nsf/Menu?openform > output.htm

..so the variable information was getting tagged on the end of the
output.htm file!

Once I turned on the -o option to output the HTML file, I realised the
variable info was there on the stdout all along!

Thanks

Reuben

What is an 'Url Alias' from client view?

What these variables say => man curl || curl -M

As i right understand you want to check the 'EXIT CODES' on
http://curl.haxx.se/docs/manpage.html

.
.
7 Failed to connect to host.
.
.
28 Operation timeout. The specified time-out period was reached
   according to the conditions.
.
.

I'm not sure which of them will be returned on

--connect-timeout
--max-time
--speed-time

and i don't know which of these params are usefull for you.

Hth

al ;-)

PS: Have you read really the manpage?!
