       ne_set_useragent, ne_set_read_timeout, ne_set_connect_timeout, ne_get_scheme,
       ne_get_server_hostport - common properties for HTTP sessions


       #include <ne_session.h>

       void ne_set_useragent(ne_session *session, const char *product);

       void ne_set_read_timeout(ne_session *session, int timeout);

       void ne_set_connect_timeout(ne_session *session, int timeout);

       const char *ne_get_scheme(ne_sesssion *session);

       const char *ne_get_server_hostport(ne_sesssion *session);


       The User-Agent request header is used to identify the software which generated the request
       for statistical or debugging purposes. neon does not send a User-Agent header unless a
       call is made to the ne_set_useragent.  ne_set_useragent must be passed a product string
       conforming to RFC2616's product token grammar; of the form "Product/Version".

       When neon reads from a socket, by default the read operation will time out after 60
       seconds, and the request will fail giving an NE_TIMEOUT error. To configure this timeout
       interval, call ne_set_read_timeout giving the desired number of seconds as the timeout

       When a connection is being established to a server, normally only the system's TCP timeout
       handling will apply. To configure a specific (and probably shorter) timeout, the
       ne_set_connect_timeout can be used, giving the desired number of seconds as the timeout
       parameter. If 0 is passed, then the default behaviour of using the system TCP timeout will
       be used.

       The scheme used to initially create the session will be returned by ne_get_scheme.

       The hostport pair with which the session is associated will be returned by the
       ne_get_server_hostport; for example Note that the :port will be
       omitted if the default port for the scheme is used.


       Set a user-agent string:

           ne_session *sess = ne_session_create(...);
           ne_set_useragent(sess, "MyApplication/2.1");

       Set a 30 second read timeout:

           ne_session *sess = ne_session_create(...);
           ne_set_read_timeout(sess, 30);


       ne_session_create, ne_set_session_flag.
