Class Protocols.HTTP.Session

Variable default_headers

mapping Protocols.HTTP.Session.default_headers


Default HTTP headers.

Variable follow_redirects

int Protocols.HTTP.Session.follow_redirects


The number of redirects to follow, if any. This is the default to the created Request objects.

A redirect automatically turns into a GET request, and all header, query, post or put information is dropped.

Default is 20 redirects. A negative number will mean infinity.


Loops will currently not be detected, only the limit works to stop loops.

int|float Protocols.HTTP.Session.time_to_keep_unused_connections
