POST parameter echo example

To try this example, you need GNU make and git in your PATH.

To build the example, run the following command:

$ make

To start the release in the foreground:

$ ./_rel/echo_post_example/bin/echo_post_example console

As this example echoes a POST parameter, it is a little more complex to test. Some browsers feature tools that allow you to perform one such request, or you can use the command line tool curl as we will demonstrate.

Example output

$ curl -i -d echo=echomeplz http://localhost:8080
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
