I’ve got dizzy trying to dig through all the remote file and server directory and URI and Url andHttp* classes. Do we really have three completely different ways of handling files out on the web?

What I need to do is access a zip file on a server, download it and save a directory of the constituent parts. The contained files are assorted gifs, jpegs, wav etc media files. Ideally I’d like to decode those without even saving the separate files and then re-loading them but let’s see if I can just get the data and unzip it first.

Why do we want intelligent terminals when there are so many stupid users?
