- Web Publishing

Tcl Clients edit
- A client-side implementation of HTTP bundled with Tcl.
- Another client-side implementation of HTTP.
- A REST-capable, never-blocking HTTP client package that supports HTTPS, deflate, chunked encoding for Tcl, NaviServer, or AOLserver.
- ycl comm http
- An HTTP client that uses coroutines and reflected channels. Supports chunked encoding.
(The Docker client
implementation includes an implementation of the minimal subset of HTTP necessary for the very purpose of talking to the Docker daemon. It has the particularity (over http
) to support chunked encoding, and I wish I had known about rl_http
before! Note that the implementation is also able to perform HTTP protocol operation on top of any file descriptor, since it uses pipes to netcat
to talk to local Docker daemons (UNIX domain sockets). EF
- a tcllib module that attempts to automate the use of HTTP proxy servers in Tcl HTTP client code.
- a virtual filesystem for HTTP transactions

Line Translation editPYK
2016-04-13: When forming an HTTP request in Tcl, make sure lines end in CRLF. Otherwise, the reponse may be 400 Bad Request
. The MIME
module in Tcllib
produces messages with CRLF as the line delimiter, in which case the channel should be configured as -translation binary
