Filenames of files downloaded via urlretrieve that have been redirected

Discussion in 'Python' started by Ray Slakinski, May 10, 2005.

  1. I got a small issue, I am using urllib.urlretreive to download files
    but in some cases I'm downloading from a CGI that is redirecting
    urlretrieve to a different url.

    Example:

    urllib.urlretreive('http://someurl.com/files.asp?file=55',
    'tempFileName.tmp')

    Is there a way to know what filename files.asp is redirecting to so I
    can rename tempFileName.tmp to the correct name?

    Thanks in advance,
    Ray
