                          HTTP Range Requests
                      draft-ietf-httpbis-range-01

Abstract

   The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is a stateless application-
   level protocol for distributed, collaborative, hypertext information
   systems.  This document formerly defined range requests and the rules
   for constructing and combining responses to those requests, which has
   since been moved to the core HTTP Semantics document.

Editorial Note

   This note is to be removed before publishing as an RFC.

   Discussion of this draft takes place on the HTTP working group
   mailing list (ietf-http-wg@w3.org), which is archived at
   <https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/ietf-http-wg/>.

   Working Group information can be found at <https://httpwg.org/>;
   source code and issues list for this draft can be found at

1.  Introduction

   Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) clients often encounter
   interrupted data transfers as a result of canceled requests or
   dropped connections.  This document defined HTTP/1.1 range requests,
   partial responses, and the multipart/byteranges media type.

   The entire content of this document (previously in [RFC2616] and
   [RFC7233]) has been moved to [Semantics].
