Re: Questions Regarding "HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error"

13 means "HTTP_RESP", and indicates that HTTPAPI detected the error by 
reading the response code from the HTTP server.  (In this case, the 
response code was 500 -- but any response code aside from 200 would 
indicate an error.)

500 means "internal server error", and means that the server detected an 
error on it's own side of the conversation.  Usually, it means that a 
program that the HTTP server ran (e.g. the web service) ended abnormally.

It's generally not a very useful error code, because there are so many 
possible causes.

The number 500 should be returned from the http_url_post_xxx or 
http_url_get_xxx routine that you're calling.

     code = http_url_post_xml(...etc...);
     when code = 500;
        // do whatever
     when code <> 1;
        msg = http_error();
