       Net::HTTPServer::Response - HTTP response


       Net::HTTPServer::Response handles formatting the response to the client.


       Net::HTTPServer::Response provides a nice OOP interface for easy control of headers,
       cookies, sessions, and/or the content that will be sent to the requesting client.


       my $response = new Net::HTTPServer::Response();

       my $response = new Net::HTTPServer::Response(code=>200,

       my $response = $request->Response();


       Given a config hash, return a server object that you can start, process, and stop.  The
       config hash takes the options:

           body => string      - The contents of the response.
                                 ( Default: "" )

           code => int         - The return code of this reponse.
                                 ( Default: 200 )

           cookies => hashref  - Hash reference to a set of cookies to send.
                                 Most people should just use the Cookie method
                                 to set these.
                                 ( Default: {} )

           headers => hashref  - Hash reference to the headers to send.  Most
                                 people should just use the Header method.
                                 ( Default: {} )

       Returns the current value of the response body.  Sets the content of the response if a
       value is specified.

       Reset the body to "".

       Returns the current value of the response code.  Set the status code of the response if a
       value is specified.

       Returns the cookie value for the specified name, or undef if it is not set.  If the value
       is also specified, then the cookie is set to the value.  The optional hash options that
       you can provide to the cookie are:

           domain => string   - If specified, the client will return the
                                cookie for any hostname that is part of
                                the domain.

           expires => string  - When should the cookie expire.  Must be
                                formatted according to the rules:
                                    Wednesday, 30-June-2004 18:14:24 GMT
                                Optionally you can specify "now" which
                                will resolve to the current time.

           path => string     - The path on the server that the client should
                                return the cookie for.

           secure => 0|1      - The client will only return the cookie over
                                an HTTPS connection.

       Returns the header value for the specified name, or undef if it is not set.  If the value
       is specified, then the header is set to the value.

       Appends the arguments to the end of the body.

       Redirect the client to the specified URL.

       Register the Net::HTTPServer::Session object with the response.  When the server builds
       the actual reponse to the client it will set the appropriate cookie and save the session.
       If the response is created from the request object, and there was a session created from
       the request object then this, will be prepopulated with that session.

       If you use the CGI perl module then it wants to print everything to STDOUT.
       CaptureSTDOUT() will put the Reponse object into a mode where it will capture all the
       output from the module. See ProcessSTDOUT() for more information.

       This will harvest all of the data printed to STDOUT and put it into the Response object
       via a Print() call.  This will also stop monitoring STDOUT and release it.  You can
       specify some options:

         strip_header => 0|1     - If you use the CGI module and you
                                   print the headers then ProcessSTDOUT()
                                   can try to strip those out.  The best
                                   plan is not to print them.

       See CaptureSTDOUT() for more information.
