Net::HTTPHeader

The HTTPHeader module defines methods for reading and writing HTTP headers.

It is used as a mixin by other classes, to provide hash-like access to HTTP header values. Unlike raw hash access, HTTPHeader provides access via case-insensitive keys. It also provides methods for accessing commonly-used HTTP header values in more convenient formats.

Public Instance Methods

[](key) click to toggle source

Returns the header field corresponding to the case-insensitive key. For example, a key of “Content-Type” might return “text/html”

 
               # File net/http/header.rb, line 29
def [](key)
  a = @header[key.downcase] or return nil
  a.join(', ')
end
            
[]=(key, val) click to toggle source

Sets the header field corresponding to the case-insensitive key.

 
               # File net/http/header.rb, line 35
def []=(key, val)
  unless val
    @header.delete key.downcase
    return val
  end
  @header[key.downcase] = [val]
end
            
add_field(key, val) click to toggle source
Ruby 1.8.3

Adds a value to a named header field, instead of replacing its value. Second argument val must be a String. See also #[]=, #[] and get_fields.

request.add_field 'X-My-Header', 'a'
p request['X-My-Header']              #=> "a"
p request.get_fields('X-My-Header')   #=> ["a"]
request.add_field 'X-My-Header', 'b'
p request['X-My-Header']              #=> "a, b"
p request.get_fields('X-My-Header')   #=> ["a", "b"]
request.add_field 'X-My-Header', 'c'
p request['X-My-Header']              #=> "a, b, c"
p request.get_fields('X-My-Header')   #=> ["a", "b", "c"]
 
               # File net/http/header.rb, line 58
def add_field(key, val)
  if @header.key?(key.downcase)
    @header[key.downcase].push val
  else
    @header[key.downcase] = [val]
  end
end
            
basic_auth(account, password) click to toggle source

Set the Authorization: header for “Basic” authorization.

 
               # File net/http/header.rb, line 419
def basic_auth(account, password)
  @header['authorization'] = [basic_encode(account, password)]
end
            
canonical_each() click to toggle source
Alias for: each_capitalized
chunked?() click to toggle source

Returns “true” if the “transfer-encoding” header is present and set to “chunked”. This is an HTTP/1.1 feature, allowing the the content to be sent in “chunks” without at the outset stating the entire content length.

 
               # File net/http/header.rb, line 280
def chunked?
  return false unless @header['transfer-encoding']
  field = self['Transfer-Encoding']
  (/(?:\A|[^\-\w])chunked(?![\-\w])/ =~ field) ? true : false
end
            
connection_close?() click to toggle source
 
               # File net/http/header.rb, line 433

  tokens(@header['connection']).include?('close') or
  tokens(@header['proxy-connection']).include?('close')
end
            
connection_keep_alive?() click to toggle source
 
               # File net/http/header.rb, line 438
def connection_keep_alive?
  tokens(@header['connection']).include?('keep-alive') or
  tokens(@header['proxy-connection']).include?('keep-alive')
end
            
content_length() click to toggle source

Returns an Integer object which represents the HTTP Content-Length: header field, or nil if that field was not provided.

 
               # File net/http/header.rb, line 261
def content_length
  return nil unless key?('Content-Length')
  len = self['Content-Length'].slice(/\d+/) or
      raise Net::HTTPHeaderSyntaxError, 'wrong Content-Length format'
  len.to_i
end
            
content_length=(len) click to toggle source
 
               # File net/http/header.rb, line 268
def content_length=(len)

  end
  @header['content-length'] = [len.to_i.to_s]
end
            
content_range() click to toggle source

Returns a Range object which represents the value of the Content-Range: header field. For a partial entity body, this indicates where this fragment fits inside the full entity body, as range of byte offsets.

 
               # File net/http/header.rb, line 290
def content_range
  return nil unless @header['content-range']
  m = %r<bytes\s+(\d+)-(\d+)/(\d+|\*)>.match(self['Content-Range']) or
      raise Net::HTTPHeaderSyntaxError, 'wrong Content-Range format'
  m[1].to_i .. m[2].to_i
end
            
content_type() click to toggle source

set_content_type(type, params = {}) click to toggle source

Sets the content type in an HTTP header. The type should be a full HTTP content type, e.g. “text/html”. The params are an optional Hash of parameters to add after the content type, e.g. {'charset' => 'iso-8859-1'}

 
               # File net/http/header.rb, line 348

Also aliased as: content_type=
set_form(params, enctype='application/x-www-form-urlencoded', formopt={}) click to toggle source

Set a HTML form data set. params is the form data set; it is an Array of Arrays or a Hash +enctype is the type to encode the form data set. It is application/x-www-form-urlencoded or multipart/form-data. formpot is an optional hash to specify the detail.

boundary

the boundary of the multipart message

charset

the charset of the message. All names and the values of non-file fields are encoded as the charset.

Each item of params is an array and contains following items:

name

the name of the field

value

the value of the field, it should be a String or a File

opt

an optional hash to specify additional information

Each item is a file field or a normal field. If value is a File object or the opt have a filename key, the item is treated as a file field.

If Transfer-Encoding is set as chunked, this send the request in chunked encoding. Because chunked encoding is HTTP/1.1 feature, you must confirm the server to support HTTP/1.1 before sending it.

Example:

http.set_form([["q", "ruby"], ["lang", "en"]])

See also RFC 2388, RFC 2616, HTML 4.01, and HTML5

  else
    raise ArgumentError, "invalid enctype: #{enctype}"
  end
end
            
set_form_data(params, sep = '&') click to toggle source

Set header fields and a body from HTML form data. params should be an Array of Arrays or a Hash containing HTML form data. Optional argument sep means data record separator.

Values are URL encoded as necessary and the content-type is set to application/x-www-form-urlencoded

Example:

http.form_data = {"q" => "ruby", "lang" => "en"}
http.form_data = {"q" => ["ruby", "perl"], "lang" => "en"}
http.set_form_data({"q" => "ruby", "lang" => "en"}, ';')
 
               # File net/http/header.rb, line 367
def set_form_data(params, sep = '&')
  query = URI.encode_www_form(params)
  query.gsub!(/&/, sep) if sep != '&'
  self.body = query
  self.content_type = 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded'
end
            
Also aliased as: form_data=
set_range(r, e = nil) click to toggle source

Sets the HTTP Range: header. Accepts either a Range object as a single argument, or a beginning index and a length from that index. Example:

req.range = (0..1023)
req.set_range 0, 1023
 
               # File net/http/header.rb, line 228

  when Range
    first = r.first
    last = r.last
    last -= 1 if r.exclude_end?
    if last == -1
      rangestr = (first > 0 ? "#{first}-" : "-#{-first}")
    else
      raise Net::HTTPHeaderSyntaxError, 'range.first is negative' if first < 0
      raise Net::HTTPHeaderSyntaxError, 'range.last is negative' if last < 0
      raise Net::HTTPHeaderSyntaxError, 'must be .first < .last' if first > last
      rangestr = "#{first}-#{last}"
    end
  else
    raise TypeError, 'Range/Integer is required'
  end
  @header['range'] = ["bytes=#{rangestr}"]
  r
end
            
Also aliased as: range=
sub_type() click to toggle source

Returns a content type string such as “html”. This method returns nil if Content-Type: header field does not exist or sub-type is not given (e.g. “Content-Type: text”).

 
               # File net/http/header.rb, line 323
def sub_type
  return nil unless @header['content-type']
  _, sub = *self['Content-Type'].split(';').first.to_s.split('/')
  return nil unless sub
  sub.strip
end

"content-type" => "text/html",
"date" => "Wed, 22 Jun 2005 22:11:50 GMT"}
 
               # File net/http/header.rb, line 153
def to_hash
  @header.dup
end
            
type_params() click to toggle source

Any parameters specified for the content type, returned as a Hash. For example, a header of Content-Type: text/html; charset=EUC-JP would result in #type_params returning {'charset' => 'EUC-JP'}

 
               # File net/http/header.rb, line 333
def type_params
  result = {}
  list = self['Content-Type'].to_s.split(';')
  list.shift
  list.each do |param|
    k, v = *param.split('=', 2)
    result[k.strip] = v.strip
  end
  result
