OpenSolaris 2009.06 - man page for ne_set_request_expect100 (opensolaris section 3)

NE_SET_REQUEST_E(3)			neon API reference		      NE_SET_REQUEST_E(3)

NAME
       ne_set_request_expect100 - function to enable Expect: 100-continue support

SYNOPSIS
       #include <ne_request.h>

       void ne_set_request_expect100 (ne_request *request, int flag);

DESCRIPTION
       An  extension introduced in the HTTP/1.1 specification was the use of the Expect: 100-con-
       tinue header. This header allows an HTTP client to be informed of  the  expected  response
       status before the request message body is sent: a useful optimisation for situations where
       a large message body is to be sent. The ne_set_request_expect100 function can be  used  to
       enable this feature by passing the flag parameter as any non-zero integer.

	      Warning

	      Unfortunately, if this header is sent to a server which is not fully compliant with
	      the HTTP/1.1 specification, a deadlock occurs resulting  in  a  temporarily  "hung"
	      connection.  neon  will recover gracefully from this situation, but only after a 15
	      second timeout. It is highly recommended that this option is not enabled unless  it
	      is known that the server in use correctly implements Expect: 100-continue support.

SEE ALSO
       ne_request_create(3).
