NE_SET_USERAGENT(3)						neon API reference					       NE_SET_USERAGENT(3)

ne_set_useragent, ne_set_persist, ne_set_read_timeout, ne_get_scheme, ne_get_server_hostport - common properties for HTTP sessions
#include <ne_session.h> void ne_set_useragent (ne_session *session, const char *product); void ne_set_persist (ne_session *session, int flag); void ne_set_read_timeout (ne_session *session, int timeout); const char *ne_get_scheme (ne_sesssion *session); const char *ne_get_server_hostport (ne_sesssion *session);
The User-Agent request header is used to identify the software which generated the request for statistical or debugging purposes. neon does not send a User-Agent header unless a call is made to the ne_set_useragent. ne_set_useragent must be passed a product string conforming to RFC2616's product token grammar; of the form "Product/Version". By default neon will use a persistent connection whenever possible. For specific applications, or for debugging purposes, it is sometimes useful to disable persistent connections. The ne_set_persist function will disable persistent connections if passed a flag parameter of 0, and will enable them otherwise. When neon reads from a socket, by default the read operation will time out after 60 seconds, and the request will fail giving an NE_TIMEOUT error. To configure this timeout interval, call ne_set_read_timeout giving the desired number of seconds as the timeout parameter. The scheme used to initially create the session will be returned by ne_get_scheme. The hostport pair with which the session is associated will be returned by the ne_get_server_hostport; for example Note that the :port will be omitted if the default port for the scheme is used.
Set a user-agent string: ne_session *sess = ne_session_create(...); ne_set_useragent(sess, "MyApplication/2.1"); Disable use of persistent connections: ne_session *sess = ne_session_create(...); ne_set_persist(sess, 0); Set a 30 second read timeout: ne_session *sess = ne_session_create(...); ne_set_read_timeout(sess, 30);
