I use


to get the request body.

But before I get to that stage, I want to process the HTTP headers to see if
I want to continue accepting the rest of the request. If yes, I want to
respond with a 100 Continue status. Will apache automatically send 100
Continue response to the client as soon as I set req->status =
HTTP_CONTINUE, wait and resume processing when the client starts sending the
rest of the request?

I will take a look at the file that you have mentioned.

Thanks again.
