Include link to RFC3875 (CGI 1.1 specification) #352

... and the section describing how headers are to be translated into HTTP_xxx names.

This link defines important behaviors not described in the Rack SPEC, including:

  • dash to underscore translation
  • uppercase-ness
  • that multi-value headers must be rewritten to single-value with the same semantics (presumably as described in RFC2616 section 4.2)

You lost a T :>

haha, oops. Github's editor behaves strangely at a non-default font size ;)

Fixed, diff looks right now.

Humble suggestion: could the anchor point to the HTML version of the RFC at https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3875? The HTML version is much pleasant to read and navigate.

@jordansissel jordansissel Include link to RFC3875 (CGI 1.1 specification)
This is to help describe how headers are to be translated into HTTP_xxx

Pointed to the html version with an anchor that points to the right section :)

I also updated the branch to be only one commit (no more typo fix commit)
