Reference Manual does not match code

Postby amdunn » Tue Feb 25, 2020 7:44 pm

There are discrepancies between the Reference Manual PDF and the actual code.

For instance... the manual refers to httpdGetConnection which does not exist.

The manual shows httpdReadRequest with one parameter (httpd *server) but the code has three (server, plus timeout, plus int pointer to status) and there is no documentation on status returns.

Assuming the code is correct (of course!) where can we find updated documentation that matches it?

Thanks for your post. There were lots of changes for the 2.0 release and it looks like not all of those changes have been correctly reflected in the doco. We're planning on making new releases of all our projects in March after we complete some major work we're currently involved with. I'll make sure the doco for libhttpd is checked at that time.
