Mechanism to set Content-Length on streamed responses

Anonymous avatarAnonymous created an issue

Presently, Content-Length is cleared when streaming; the reasoning is discussed on-list at http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.comp.python.cherrypy/2817.

Quoting from said email (by Robert Brewer):

The solution I've wanted to pursue for a while now is this: provide a different "safe" mechanism via the "chunked" transfer-coding (see http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec3.html#sec3.6.1), which would require cooperation on the WSGI server side. If we had that, then we could make that the norm and allow "streaming" content to be unsafe in rare cases. But until we have that, I have a hard time only providing an "unsafe" mechanism.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
