Hi all

I'm trying to GET/PUT files over HTTP and I'm a little confused by the
different possibilities offered by GNUstep. Is it better to use NSURL
facilities, NSURLHandle or NSURLConnection ?
What's the status of the classes implementations ? Do they match their
Cocoa versions in the last gnustep-base release ?

NSURLHandle is complete, and actually goes well beyond what the Apple implementation offers since the apple version was rather poor and needed quite a bit of enhancement.

The newer classes were introduced by Apple to remedy the shortcomings of their NSURLHandle stuff, but these classes are incomplete in GNUstep.

What I'd *like* people to do is write code that works on both systems, by completing the implementation of the new classes in GNUstep (and contributing them of course) and using the newe API, but if you really just want something to work on GNUstep, and need to go beyond the most basic use of http, then NSURLHandle will do the job.
