http-twiddle -- send & twiddle & resend HTTP requests

This is a program for testing hand-written HTTP requests. You write your request in an Emacs buffer (using http-twiddle-mode) and then press C-c C-c' each time you want to try sending it to the server. This way you can interactively debug the requests. To change port or destination doC-u C-c C-c'.

The mode is activated by `M-x http-twiddle-mode' or automatically when opening a filename ending with .http-twiddle.

The request can either be written from scratch or you can paste it from a snoop/tcpdump and then twiddle from there.

See the documentation for the http-twiddle-mode' and http-twiddle-mode-send' functions below for more details and try `M-x http-twiddle-mode-demo' for a simple get-started example.


If the Content-Length header is not written out (like in the examples below) it'll be added automatically on send.


GET /user/bob/ HTTP/1.1 Host: [blank line here]


POST /user/create/ HTTP/1.1 Host: Content-Type: text/xml Connection: close
