14.40 Transfer-Encoding

14.40 Transfer-Encoding

The Transfer-Encoding general-header field indicates what (if any) type of transformation has been applied to the message body in order to safely transfer it between the sender and the recipient. This differs from the Content-Encoding in that the transfer coding is a property of the message, not of the entity.

          Transfer-Encoding       = "Transfer-Encoding" ":" 1#transfer-coding

Transfer codings are defined in section 3.6. An example is:

          Transfer-Encoding: chunked

Many older HTTP/1.0 applications do not understand the Transfer- Encoding header.
