A package for fetching data via HTTP
Accessing HTTP Package Commands
List of HTTP Package Commands
The HTTP package is a collection of commands for HTTP clients. It only partially implements the HTTP standard. For example, it currently does not support persistent connections.
The HTTP package is implemented on top of the URL package. The URL package is a generalization of the HTTP package.
Each command in the HTTP package can be accessed by using either the long form or the short form of the command name in the command calling sequence.
The long form, HTTP:-command, is always available. The short form can be used after loading the package.
The following is a list of commands available in the HTTP package.
To display the help page for a particular HTTP command, see Getting Help with a Command in a Package.
Use the URLEncode command to replace non-alphanumeric symbols in a string.
