end
entry do
name '101 Switching protocols'
notes 'The requester has asked the server to switch protocols and the server is acknowledging that it will do so.'
end
entry do
name '102 Processing'
notes 'The server has received and is processing the request, but no response is available yet.'
end
end
category do
id '2xx Success'
entry do
name '200 OK'

end
entry do
name '201 Created'
notes 'The request has been fulfilled and a new resource has been created.'

notes 'HTTP 1.1. The server successfully processed the request but is returning information from another source.'
end
entry do
name '204 No content'

end
entry do
name '205 Reset content'
notes 'Similar to a `204 No Content` response but this response requires the requester to reset the document view.'
end
entry do
name '206 Partial content'
notes 'The server is delivering only a portion of the content, as requested by the client via a range header.'
end
entry do
name '207 Multi-status'

end
entry do
name '303 See other'
