Thanks for the pointer to IOLib! We don't have anything like it, but there is an http client: It also has unit tests, so is unlikely to have suffered bitrot.

I've built an http client several times in my life, particularly in Wart ( and in Mu ( So I'd be happy to help if you want to try to put something together yourself.

Thanks, Kartik!

I appreciate the info. I was actually just looking at Mu since I cloned that code for review recently. Since the framework I'll be doing this in is a testing suite, Mu may be the best model for me to follow.

Since I'm focused on UDP, Looking at comments in ac.scm in Arc, I realized MzScheme might hold the answer - there are plenty of UDP functions in those libraries.

Let me poke around a but and I'll shoot you an email if I have something to pass by you for opinion.

It's about now I realize I'm using an old Arc (hence the MzScheme reference). Moving to arc-nu and Racket (as noted by Zachary) which provides all the UDP I need ;-)

I'll spend some time on this - appreciate the responses.

Great. Just one caveat: we tend to have more experience with just Anarki ( which is also using the latest Racket.

If you're thinking of, the author hasn't been active here in a while, so you may need to ping Pauan separately.

Ah... thanks for that note. I am working with Anarki primarily now as noted earlier for News and similar, but also didn't catch on that it was the main working model here.
