Force file download / Save information from a page to user?
Posted on 2000-05-09
I thought it's possible to create a stream of non-html mime type thus a browser would offer a user to save the content of the stream to a file, however I haven't succeded.
Bacically, the requirements are:
1) Javascrip/DHTML solution only (in conjunction with a Java applet in the worst case :-)
2) No interaction with a server - everything is client-based.
3) In the end, the information should be save to a file on user's disk, thus the solution of just saving in cokies between the sessions is not good enough.
I would appreciate it very much if anyone has any ideas how to do it.
