in reply to How to download a range of bytes?

This seems to work:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use LWP::UserAgent; my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new; my $url = 'http://localhost/...'; $ua->default_headers->push_header(Range => "bytes=1000-2000"); my $response = $ua->get($url); my $content = $response->content(); warn length($content); warn $content;
To get the current content length of the object, you can do a HEAD before and look at the content-length header.

    The code works verrrrrrry good eserte. Big thanks. But new question arrive to my head, are there any way to know if the server have the abbility of "Accept-Ranges: bytes" ?? Thanks in advance.
      Try fetching with HEAD instead of GET to view the Accept* headers without getting the content itself
