http::async_write_header

Write a header to a stream asynchronously using a serializer.

Synopsis

Defined in header <beast/http/write.hpp>

template<
    class AsyncWriteStream,
    bool isRequest,
    class Body,
    class Fields,
    class WriteHandler>
void-or-deduced
async_write_header(
    AsyncWriteStream& stream,
    serializer< isRequest, Body, Fields >& sr,
    WriteHandler&& handler);
Description

This function is used to write a header to a stream asynchronously using a caller-provided HTTP/1 serializer. The function call always returns immediately. The asynchronous operation will continue until one of the following conditions is true:

This operation is implemented in terms of zero or more calls to the stream's async_write_some function, and is known as a composed operation. The program must ensure that the stream performs no other write operations until this operation completes.

Parameters

Name

Description

stream

The stream to which the data is to be written. The type must support the AsyncWriteStream concept.

sr

The serializer to use. The object must remain valid at least until the handler is called; ownership is not transferred.

handler

The handler to be called when the operation completes. Copies will be made of the handler as required. The equivalent function signature of the handler must be:

 void handler(
    error_code const& error // result of operation
);

Regardless of whether the asynchronous operation completes immediately or not, the handler will not be invoked from within this function. Invocation of the handler will be performed in a manner equivalent to using boost::asio::io_service::post.

Remarks

The implementation will call http::serializer::split with the value true on the serializer passed in.
