Sample request:

C:>curl.exe -i https://ec.haxx.se/http-requests.html -s
HTTP/2 200
age: 619
content-encoding: identity
content-type: text/html
...

If I use the --trace-ascii option, in the file I can find

=> Send header, 90 bytes (0x5a)
0000: GET /http-requests.html HTTP/2
0020: Host: ec.haxx.se
0032: User-Agent: curl/7.54.1
004b: Accept: */*
0058:

Expected

I expected these lines also in stdout. I'd say they appear in linux (I don't have a linux machine right now to say). To be honest, my idea of this behavior in linux didn't include httpS, so this could be the cause.

Well, using plain http in Windows results in the same output:

C:>curl.exe -i http://www.curlpp.org/  -s
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: GitHub.com
Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8
Last-Modified: Fri, 05 May 2017 05:25:58 GMT
...

curl/libcurl version

-i is for showing the response headers to the same output destination as the body. It doesn't not mean you'll see the outgoing request. To see the request, use -v or one of the --trace* options.

What do you think about changing the doc to: Include the response HTTP-header in the output.
