func NewChunkedReader

func NewChunkedReader(r io.Reader) io.Reader

NewChunkedReader returns a new chunkedReader that translates the data read from r out of HTTP "chunked" format before returning it. The chunkedReader returns io.EOF when the final 0-length chunk is read.

NewChunkedReader is not needed by normal applications. The http package automatically decodes chunking when reading response bodies.

func NewChunkedWriter

func NewChunkedWriter(w io.Writer) io.WriteCloser

NewChunkedWriter returns a new chunkedWriter that translates writes into HTTP "chunked" format before writing them to w. Closing the returned chunkedWriter sends the final 0-length chunk that marks the end of the stream but does not send the final CRLF that appears after trailers; trailers and the last CRLF must be written separately.

NewChunkedWriter is not needed by normal applications. The http package adds chunking automatically if handlers don't set a Content-Length header. Using newChunkedWriter inside a handler would result in double chunking or chunking with a Content-Length length, both of which are wrong.


type FlushAfterChunkWriter added in go1.5

type FlushAfterChunkWriter struct {

FlushAfterChunkWriter signals from the caller of NewChunkedWriter that each chunk should be followed by a flush. It is used by the net/http.Transport code to keep the buffering behavior for headers and trailers, but flush out chunks aggressively in the middle for request bodies which may be generated slowly. See Issue 6574.
