NAME

HTTP::HeaderParser::XS - an XS extension for processing HTTP headers.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  use HTTP::HeaderParser::XS;

  my $hdr = HTTP::HeaderParser::XS->new( \"GET / HTTP/1.0\r\nConnection: keep-alive\r\nHost: www.bar.com\r\n\r\n" );

  if ( $hdr->isResponse ) {
    # this is not a response in this simple demo, but it could be
    print "Response code: " . $hdr->getStatusCode . "\n";
    print "Connection header: " . $hdr->getHeader( Connection ) . "\n";

  } else {
    # see if its a GET request
    if ( $hdr->getMethod == M_GET ) {
      print "GET: " . $hdr->getURI() . "\n";

      # now lets rewrite the host header and rewrite the header :-)
      print "Host header was: " . $hdr->getHeader( Host ) . "\n";
      $hdr->setHeader( Host, www.foo.com );

      # show new headers, now that we changed something
      print "New headers:\n";
      print $hdr->getReconstructed . "\n";
     
    } else {
      print "Not a GET request!\n";
    }
  }



DESCRIPTION

This module parses HTTP headers using a C++ state machine. (Hence this being an XS module.) The goal is to be fast, not necessarily to do everything you could ever want.

Headers are not static, you can parse them, munge them, or even build them using this module. See the SYNOPSIS for more information on how to use this module.

KNOWN BUGS

There are no known bugs at this time. Please report any you find!
