Connection field value parser and quoted tokens





------- Additional Comments From coad@measurement-factory.com  2003-01-13 04:45 -------
I won't argue about compliance in this case. RFC 2616
is too messy when it comes to distinguishing
normative/universal statements from informal/limited
comments. Should every quoted string be parsed as such?
Hard to say. Should an invalid Connection header be
handled in some particular way? Unknown.

I think we agree that the current resolution of this
bug report is that it would be benefitial for Apache
parser to parse quoted strings in headers as single
words. Not [just] for compliance reasons, but for
compatibility with [possibly broken] agents.

If we come across an HTTP header where quoted strings are
legal AND where mis-parsing them can be detected, we
will submit another bug report.

Thank you for looking into this.
