TSHttpParserCreate

Parse HTTP headers from memory buffers.

Synopsis

#include <ts/ts.h>

TSHttpParser TSHttpParserCreate(void)
void TSHttpParserClear(TSHttpParser parser)
void TSHttpParserDestroy(TSHttpParser parser)
TSParseResult TSHttpHdrParseReq(TSHttpParser parser, TSMBuffer bufp, TSMLoc offset, const char ** start, const char * end)
TSParseResult TSHttpHdrParseResp(TSHttpParser parser, TSMBuffer bufp, TSMLoc offset, const char ** start, const char * end)

Description

TSHttpParserCreate() creates an HTTP parser object. The parser’s data structure contains information about the header being parsed. A single HTTP parser can be used multiple times, though not simultaneously. Before being used again, the parser must be cleared by calling TSHttpParserClear().

TSHttpHdrParseReq() parses an HTTP request header. The HTTP header offset must already be created, and must reside inside the marshal buffer bufp. The start argument points to the current position of the string buffer being parsed and the end argument points to one byte after the end of the buffer to be parsed. On return, start is modified to point past the last character parsed.

It is possible to parse an HTTP request header a single byte at a time using repeated calls to TSHttpHdrParseReq(). As long as an error does not occur, the TSHttpHdrParseReq() function will consume that single byte and ask for more. TSHttpHdrParseReq() should be called after TS_HTTP_READ_REQUEST_HDR_HOOK.

TSHttpHdrParseResp() operates in the same manner as TSHttpHdrParseReq() except it parses an HTTP response header. It should be called after TS_HTTP_READ_RESPONSE_HDR_HOOK.

TSHttpParserClear() clears the specified HTTP parser so it may be used again.

TSHttpParserDestroy() destroys the TSHttpParser object pointed to by parser. The parser pointer must not be NULL.

Return Values

TSHttpHdrParseReq() and TSHttpHdrParseResp() both return a TSParseResult value. TS_PARSE_ERROR is returned on error, TS_PARSE_CONT is returned if parsing of the header stopped because the end of the buffer was reached, and TS_PARSE_DONE when a \r\n\r\n pattern is encountered, indicating the end of the header.
