"Recovering" Proxomitron's Source Code...

RE: "Recovering" Proxomitron's Source Code...
There is another bug/deliberate "patch" I discovered: there is an internal function which attempts to match the extension of the URL path against a hardcoded list, and presumably decides to filter or not based on that; but the function never matches, due to always clearing the first character of the string it tries to match. As far as I can tell, this only affects behaviour in two places which won't normally be noticed: [1] removing If-Modified-Since and If-None-Match headers, and [2] deciding whether to use "killed.gif or "killed.html" on $KILL(). Very odd.

Estimated progress now at >85%. What's left is a lot of the buffering and Zlib code, and some miscellaneous UI stuff.

Even after going through the first pass, I'll need to make another pass to fix up everything I missed/was unsure of the first time, then try to compile it and finally release. I am targeting May 1, an important date you might recognise. Smile!
