i am currently using HTTPSocket to pull data from a url...
looks like this:
| data |
data := String
fromByteArray: (HTTPSocket httpGet: anUrl).
i end up with a string that has my desired data (a JSON string), but,
it's preceeded by this:
'a RWBinaryOrTextStream ' '<here is the stuff i need>' ' '
i am trying to lop off the first part by doing:
jsonData := dataString replaceAll: 'RWBinaryOrTextStream' with: 'test'.
just to see if i can touch the string..
but no matter what i do, i can't get any parts of the string to be raplaced..
it almost looks like there are three strings in there..
the RWBinaryOrTextStream one, the one i need, and an empty one..
is there a better way to pull a url?
