       neon - HTTP and WebDAV client library

       neon  is  an  HTTP  and WebDAV client library. The major abstractions exposed are the HTTP
       session, created by ne_session_create(3); and the HTTP request, created by ne_request_cre-
       ate(3).	HTTP  authentication  is  handled transparently for server and proxy servers, see
       ne_set_server_auth(3); complete SSL/TLS support	is  also  included,  see  ne_ssl_set_ver-

       Some  conventions  are  used  throughout  the neon API, to provide a consistent and simple
       interface; these are documented below.

   Thread-safeness and global initialization
       neon itself is implemented to be thread-safe (avoiding any use of global  state),  but  in
       some  configurations makes use of other libraries which require global initialization. The
       ne_sock_init(3) function should be called before any other use of the neon library  inter-

       The neon header files reserve the use of the prefixes ne_ and NE_.

   URI paths, WebDAV metadata
       The path strings passed to any function must be URI-encoded by the application: neon never
       performs any URI encoding or decoding automatically. WebDAV property names and values must
       be used un UTF-8.

   Memory handling
       neon  does  not	attempt  to  cope gracefully with an out-of-memory situation; instead, by
       default, abort is called to terminate the application. Optionally an  application-provided
       function be called before abort; see ne_oom_callback(3).

   Callbacks and userdata
       Whenever  a callback is registered, a userdata variable is also used to allow the applica-
       tion to associate a context with the callback. The userdata is of type  void  *,  allowing
       any pointer to be used.
