See RFC 2616. Using either the Content-Length header OR chunked encoding 
is a MUST in HTTP 1.1.

Something different is using HTTP 1.0.

The only (HTTP) ways of sending an unknown length file are:
a) Using HTTP 1.0, and closing the connection at the end (but the client 
cannot know for sure that the file end has arrived, and I am not even 
sure it is standards compliant).
b) Using HTTP 1.1, and using chunked encoding.
