    Can I use pure asp with "get" method?

    As the topic goes? Can I? Can I receive a file using the querystring method and save it using pure asp? If so.. how and what changes would I have to make?
    I'm gonna find a way to download the internet if its the last thing I do...

    Use php for fileuploads only

    <troll>
    Because other then that ASP works better

    Note: I do not test code. I just write it off the top of my head. There might be bugs in it! But if any thing I gave you the overall theory of what you need to accomplish. Also there are plenty of other ways to accomplish this same thing. I just gave one example of it. Other ways might be faster and more efficient.

    Why use querystring?

    Querystring allows only 8k - 16k on size (depending on client browser).

    or another option is if the server is .Net enabled use asp.net to handle the upload.

    i think you need to use post but its better than get anyway so i dont see the problem there.. and i dont see how that makes asp bad at uploads anyway i have written some pretty good upload pages in asp3, the only problem i have is that i cant check things before uploading them eg if the file already exists or the file size is too big but i expect there are COM components you can use to do that

    nancy why dont u just go back to ur little php lined hole and give people some valuable input instead of just slagging off asp
