I propose mentioning the max/min Cookie: header length in the spec

#curl now has 261 command line options, as --ip-tos and --mptcp were added for the pending 8.9.0 release:

@fkorling I don't think "converging" is a word we have in our vocabulary =)

On this day ten years ago, we lost our innocence as the former single page HTTP/1.1 specification (RFC2616) "exploded" into six separate new documents (RFC7230 and family). We could then no longer pretend HTTP was a simple protocol.

In June 2022, it was again updated:. "RFC 9110 and family". The spec is now split up into five main documents: semantics, caching and separate specs for each version: 1.1, 2, 3.

Those five documents hold 143,000 words combined. HTTP is not easy.

Would you like a "num_retries" variable for #curl's --write-out format?

If you have libcurl usage questions, prepare for my "advanced " webinar on Thursday June 13 - and hit me up.

On this day thirteen years ago, was still a thing I worked on a lot and we did a new Rockbox tower record of 117cm (in London)

https://daniel.haxx.se/blog/2011/06/05/rockbox-bridge-and-tower/

This is still the standing Rockbox tower record I believe.

Yes, I always work on important stuff.

"maybe we need this in the future" is a bad idea for writing good code. If we need that flexibility in the future, other things will have changed as well. Better do it then, not complicating matters now.

Turning down needlessly flexible code like a boss.

@deejayy having someone make decisions about code without being familiar with it is probably an even bigger mistake

bagder,
@bagder@mastodon.social avatar

@deejayy every mistake is a learning opportunity

@TimWardCam but then you actually implemented the thing, it was not just preparing for a future. I would say that is different.

Is there a way to have #curl issue a GET request and then just not wait for the file to download? -m0 doesn't seem to be doing it.

@c0dec0dec0de then that is not curl, it's just something trying to look like it

14.1% of #curl users say they have used it for 18 years or more

Some of the emails I get are truly sad reflections of the complicated and rather sorry state of things we are in. Like this.

(also, apparently #curl is used in another popular game)

I wrote most of the initial implementation for back in the day. Six years ago I explained some of the internals on my blog: https://daniel.haxx.se/blog/2018/06/03/inside-firefoxs-doh-engine/

@akkerman if that was a problem,. I'm sure that's fixed since already a long time ago...
