http range request


Is there a way to request a range of bytes using http, in a way that you can specify a stride..

i.e

 Range: bytes=1000-5000:10

 return every 10th byte from offsets 1000 to 5000 inclusive ?

if so, is this standard http,, i really need a web to do this ...

There is no way to do this that I am aware of.  Byte-ranges are part of the HTTP specification but there is no allowance for every x byte - it is only byte x though byte y.

You might be able to get this kind of result using an ISAPI filter in IIS (or similar technology for other servers) but there is no native support for it.
