Description:

I need to connect to a cgi script in a subdirectory.
http://theSite.com/subdirectory/new_login.cgi
At what point of the socket connection do you pass the directory location ('subdirectory/newlogin.cgi')?

Directory information is called from within the HTTP request, ie:

print $remote "GET http://thesite.com/subdirectory/newlogin.cgi\n";
You may want to check out RFC 2068 for more information. scott.
