FAQ

My brain-teaser: What I'd like to do is read the last ~2K of a large
number of large files on arbitrary servers across the net, without
having to read each file from the beginning (which would be slow and
resource inefficient)...
Proper googling would have revealed that HTTP 1.1 includes a Range Request. My bad.

http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec14.html

Before I reinvent the wheel (and make it a little squarer than it has to be) has anyone seen a "cookbook" recipe for adding the HTTP 1.1 range request to a urllib urlopener (or something similar)?
