( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
That only applies to the headers, not the body of the response. If the Transfer-Encoding is "identity" or omitted (in which case I believe "identity" is implied), the line endings can be anything; the body is just a stream of octets. If the line ending had to be CRLF in the body, what would that do to binary downloads?

Even if the RFC can be interpreted to say that the message body MUST have CRLF line endings (which I doubt), in real life, documents served by HTTP servers have all sorts of line endings (I've even seen mixed line endings in HTML files delivered via HTTP). If you think otherwise, look at the bytes delivered from http://www.microsoft.com/ (CRLF), http://www.linux.org/ (LF), http://www.linux.com/ (mostly LF with a few errant CRLFs), and (drat... couldn't find any pure-CR URLs).

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
