    AvantLink Datafeed Question
    I Recently signed up with AvantLink. Their data feed tools seem to work really well however I hit a snag. I'm sure it's because of my limited PHP knowledge.

    When I try to retrieve the feed with a script the file in not transferred. I end up transferring a file with the following text.

    Missing required parameter, authorization key.<br />

    Here is the code I am using. It is slimmed down to just retrieving the file for testing.

    PHP Code:
        $datafeedURL addslashes("http://serverhere/file.php?id=######&auth=########");
        
    $path "wget -P db $datafeedURL";
       `
    $path`; 
    I have double checked the numeric variables in the url and they are correct

    What am I missing?
    Thanks,
    Doug

    Doug,

    I saw this thread so I asked our CTO David Clark to take a look. Here is his IM response to me. I hope it helps:

    David Clark: He's obfuscated a lot of his real information so it's a little hard to tell.
    David Clark: But I would probably say he needs to change that first line from:
    David Clark: $datafeedURL = addslashes("http://serverhere/file.php?id=######&auth=########");
    David Clark: to
    David Clark: $datafeedURL = escapeshellarg("http://serverhere/file.php?id=######&auth=########");
    David Clark: The way he has it now, his "wget" command to actually retrieve the file is truncating the full URL.
