Could you implement GETDLNAME, GETDLSIZE (Get download target name, get download size) and STOPDL (stop download) arexx commands so maybe external download managers could work that way ?

While that would be useful, we need an integrated download manager. An external download manager is unlikely to be able to download files that require you to log in to the website first.

If you're serious about implementing a download manager, I recommend checking out the source-code. The Amiga OS 4 port is in the main OWB repository, and anyone can access it.


however it is not true that i've ported it just compiling it since there are a lot of patches in the trunk that are mine.. but that's it.. the life goes on..

It seems that a lot of people don't realize that there's no such thing as "the OWB GUI," and that each platform has to provide its own code for the GUI and platform specific stuff. Really, OWB is more of a library that can be used to build a browser as opposed to a fully featured browser like Firefox.

Also, your initial port seems like ancient history now, so its easy to forget (or not know at all, for newcomers).
