parse_headers_list(txt)

Arguments

txt

raw or character vector with the header data

multiple

parse multiple sets of headers separated by a blank line. See details.

Details

The parse_headers_list function parses the headers into a normalized (lowercase field names, trimmed whitespace) named list.

If a request has followed redirects, the data can contain multiple sets of headers. When multiple = TRUE, the function returns a list with the response headers for each request. By default it only returns the headers of the final request.
