gboolean soup_message_headers_get_ranges ( SoupMessageHeaders* hdrs, goffset total_length, SoupRange** ranges, int* length )
hdrs‘s Range header and returns an array of the requested
The returned array must be freed with
total_length is non-0, its value will be used to adjust the
returned ranges to have explicit start and end values, and the
returned ranges will be sorted and non-overlapping. If
total_length is 0, then some ranges may have an end value of -1,
as described under
SoupRange, and some of the ranges may be redundant.
Beware that even if given a
total_length, this function does not
check that the ranges are satisfiable.
SoupServer has built-in handling for range requests. If your
server handler returns a
SOUP_STATUS_OK response containing the
complete response body (rather than pausing the message and
returning some of the response body later), and there is a Range
header in the request, then libsoup will automatically convert the
response to a
SOUP_STATUS_PARTIAL_CONTENT response containing only
the range(s) requested by the client.
The only time you need to process the Range header yourself is if either you need to stream the response body rather than returning it all at once, or you do not already have the complete response body available, and only want to generate the parts that were actually requested by the client.
