CkHttpResponse Perl Reference Documentation

CkHttpResponse

Represents a complete HTTP response.

Object Creation

$obj = chilkat::CkHttpResponse()->new();

Properties

# $ckBytes is a CkByteData
$httpResponse->get_Body($ckBytes);

The response body returned as a byte array.

# $strVal is a string
# $ckStr is a CkString
$httpResponse->get_BodyQP($ckStr);
$strVal = $httpResponse->bodyQP();

The same as the Body property, but returned as a quoted-printable encoded string.

# $strVal is a string
# $ckStr is a CkString
$httpResponse->get_BodyStr($ckStr);
$strVal = $httpResponse->bodyStr();

The response body returned as a string.

# $strVal is a string
# $ckStr is a CkString
$httpResponse->get_Charset($ckStr);
$strVal = $httpResponse->charset();

The response charset, such as "iso-8859-1", if applicable. Obviously, responses for GIF and JPG files will not have a charset.

# $intVal is a unsigned long
$intVal = $httpResponse->get_ContentLength();

The content length of the response, in bytes.

# $int64Val is a 64-bit integer
$int64Val = $httpResponse->get_ContentLength64();

The content length of the response, in number of bytes, returned as a 64-bit integer.

# $strVal is a string
# $ckStr is a CkString
$httpResponse->get_DateStr($ckStr);
$strVal = $httpResponse->dateStr();

Returns the content of the Date response header field in RFC822 date/time string format.

# $strVal is a string
# $ckStr is a CkString
$httpResponse->get_DebugLogFilePath($ckStr);
$strVal = $httpResponse->debugLogFilePath();
$httpResponse->put_DebugLogFilePath($strVal);

If set to a file path, causes each Chilkat method or property call to automatically append it's LastErrorText to the specified log file. The information is appended such that if a hang or crash occurs, it is possible to see the context in which the problem occurred, as well as a history of all Chilkat calls up to the point of the problem. The VerboseLogging property can be set to provide more detailed information.

This property is typically used for debugging the rare cases where a Chilkat method call hangs or generates an exception that halts program execution (i.e. crashes). A hang or crash should generally never happen. The typical causes of a hang are:

  1. a timeout related property was set to 0 to explicitly indicate that an infinite timeout is desired,
  2. the hang is actually a hang within an event callback (i.e. it is a hang within the application code), or
  3. there is an internal problem (bug) in the Chilkat code that causes the hang.

# $strVal is a string
# $ckStr is a CkString
$httpResponse->get_Domain($ckStr);
$strVal = $httpResponse->domain();

The domain of the HTTP server that created this response.

# $strVal is a string
# $ckStr is a CkString
$httpResponse->get_FinalRedirectUrl($ckStr);
$strVal = $httpResponse->finalRedirectUrl();

Introduced in version 9.5.0.49

Returns the redirect URL for 301/302 responses.

# $strVal is a string
# $ckStr is a CkString
$httpResponse->get_FullMime($ckStr);
$strVal = $httpResponse->fullMime();

Returns the full MIME (header + body) of the HTTP response.

# $strVal is a string
# $ckStr is a CkString
$httpResponse->get_Header($ckStr);
$strVal = $httpResponse->header();

The full text of the response header.

# $strVal is a string
# $ckStr is a CkString
$httpResponse->get_LastErrorHtml($ckStr);
$strVal = $httpResponse->lastErrorHtml();

Provides information in HTML format about the last method/property called. If a method call returns a value indicating failure, or behaves unexpectedly, examine this property to get more information.

# $strVal is a string
# $ckStr is a CkString
$httpResponse->get_LastErrorText($ckStr);
$strVal = $httpResponse->lastErrorText();

Provides information in plain-text format about the last method/property called. If a method call returns a value indicating failure, or behaves unexpectedly, examine this property to get more information.

Concept of LastErrorText

LastErrorText Standard Information

# $strVal is a string
# $ckStr is a CkString
$httpResponse->get_LastErrorXml($ckStr);
$strVal = $httpResponse->lastErrorXml();

Provides information in XML format about the last method/property called. If a method call returns a value indicating failure, or behaves unexpectedly, examine this property to get more information.

# $boolVal is a boolean
$boolVal = $httpResponse->get_LastMethodSuccess();
$httpResponse->put_LastMethodSuccess($boolVal);

Introduced in version 9.5.0.52

Indicate whether the last method call succeeded or failed. A value of 1 indicates success, a value of 0 indicates failure. This property is automatically set for method calls. It is not modified by property accesses. The property is automatically set to indicate success for the following types of method calls:

  • Any method that returns a string.
  • Any method returning a Chilkat object, binary bytes, or a date/time.
  • Any method returning a standard boolean status value where success = 1 and failure = 0.
  • Any method returning an integer where failure is defined by a return value less than zero.

Note: Methods that do not fit the above requirements will always set this property equal to 1. For example, a method that returns no value (such as a "void" in C++) will technically always succeed.

# $intVal is an integer
$intVal = $httpResponse->get_NumCookies();

The number of cookies included in the response.

# $intVal is an integer
$intVal = $httpResponse->get_NumHeaderFields();

The number of response header fields.

# $intVal is an integer
$intVal = $httpResponse->get_StatusCode();

The status code (as an integer) from the first line of an HTTP response. If the StatusLine = "HTTP/1.0 200 OK", the response status code returned is 200.

# $strVal is a string
# $ckStr is a CkString
$httpResponse->get_StatusLine($ckStr);
$strVal = $httpResponse->statusLine();

The first line of an HTTP response, such as "HTTP/1.0 200 OK".

# $strVal is a string
# $ckStr is a CkString
$httpResponse->get_StatusText($ckStr);
$strVal = $httpResponse->statusText();

Introduced in version 9.5.0.49

The text that follows the status code in the 1st line of the HTTP response. For example, i the first line of an HTTP response is "HTTP/1.0 200 OK", then this property contains "OK".

# $boolVal is a boolean
$boolVal = $httpResponse->get_Utf8();
$httpResponse->put_Utf8($boolVal);

When set to 1, all "const char *" arguments are interpreted as utf-8 strings. If set to 0 (the default), then "const char *" arguments are interpreted as ANSI strings. Also, when set to 1, and Chilkat method returning a "const char *" is returning the utf-8 representation. If set to 0, all "const char *" return values are ANSI strings.

# $boolVal is a boolean
$boolVal = $httpResponse->get_VerboseLogging();
$httpResponse->put_VerboseLogging($boolVal);

If set to 1, then the contents of LastErrorText (or LastErrorXml, or LastErrorHtml) may contain more verbose information. The default value is 0. Verbose logging should only be used for debugging. The potentially large quantity of logged information may adversely affect peformance.

# $strVal is a string
# $ckStr is a CkString
$httpResponse->get_Version($ckStr);
$strVal = $httpResponse->version();

Version of the component/library, such as "9.5.0.63"

Returns 1 for success, 0 for failure.

Getting the HTTP Response after an Asynchronous HTTP Request Completes

# $path is a string
$status = $httpResponse->SaveBodyBinary($path);

Saves the body of the HTTP response to a file.

Returns 1 for success, 0 for failure.

# $bCrlf is a boolean
# $path is a string
$status = $httpResponse->SaveBodyText($bCrlf, $path);

Saves the HTTP response body to a file. This method provides control over CRLF vs bare-LF line-endings. If bCrlf is 1, then line endings are automatically converted to CRLF if necessary. If bCrlf is 0, then line-endings are automatically converted to bare-LF's (Unix style) if necessary.

To save the HTTP response body exactly as-is (with no line-ending manipulation), then call SaveBodyBinary.

Returns 1 for success, 0 for failure.

# $path is a string
$status = $httpResponse->SaveLastError($path);

Saves the last-error information (the contents of LastErrorXml) to an XML formatted file.

Returns 1 for success, 0 for failure.

$status = $httpResponse->UrlEncParamValue($encodedParamString, $paramName, $outStr);
$retStr = $httpResponse->urlEncParamValue($encodedParamString, $paramName);

Convenience method for parsing a param's value out of a URL-encoded param string. For example, if a caller passes the following string in encodedParamString:

oauth_token=ABC&oauth_token_secret=123&oauth_callback_confirmed=true
and "oauth_token_secret" in paramName, then the return value would be "123".

Returns 1 for success, 0 for failure.
