Lessons by Jon
Th-th-th-that's All Folks!!
There, that wasn't so bad, was it? You are now a well-informed person
qualified to ask questions on the MacHTTP-list without fear that everyone
is laughing because you're the only one that didn't know that (whatever
"that" was). And, of course, you are now ready to start helping others
as well. That's always the best way to say "Thank you", passing on the
help (or kindness or love, but probably not from these pages) to others
that was shown to you.
These pages are maintained in my "free" time - which usually means my wife
is doing all the house and family work while I type away. For that reason updates will occur
sporadically, in bursts, and without notice. I do appreciate suggestions
for improvement or, more importantly, a gentle notice of something I've
gotten wrong. I've left many things out until I understand them sufficiently
to be confident of what I write, but there was plenty I wrote on that I'm
not completely sure of.
If this has been especially helpful to you,I always enjoy hearing about it.
Feel free to send e-mail to thank me, or to ask questions about the parts I
glossed over, or (more importantly) to let me know of any errors you find.
Email should be sent to me at
If you want to copy part or all of these pages
to create your own helpful documentation, please let me know. I'm not
at all opposed to it, I just like knowing how it is being used. OK, I'm
nosy. There. I'd still like to know, though.
I do plan eventually to credit all of the people that have provided examples
or explanations which I used to write the lessons. Unfortunately, most of
that material was thrown into a drop folder for months and now I can't track
some of it. Here are a few of the names that I know for certain:
There are many others. I am grateful to all of you, whoever you are.
- Chuck Shotton (of course. None of this happens without MacHTTP itself)
- Wayne Walrath (Tokenize, JoinList, and many other fine OSAXen)
- Atul Butte (TCP/IP Scripting Suite)
- C. Joe Holmes
- Eric Morgan
