Precisely, it was a mistake I was making with my telnet session. I misinterpreted "sending" as really just inserting a couple of new lines. Also, it worked properly when I wrote a simple form to POST in Firefox.
Great! Your response cleared up nearly everything for me, the only other thing I'm not completely clear on is the difference between:
in ngx_http_request_body_t. What is the difference between them? When should I use either to access the body?
I seem to be able to access:
the same as I can use:
While r->request_body->bufs->next is NULL. So obviously the chain is some sort of linked list.
My only clue here are the:
directives in NginxHttpCoreModule
So if I specify "client_body_in_single_buffer" as "true", does it store the entire client request in r->request_body->buf?
But if not, does it separate the client request body into the chunks of whatever client_body_buffer_size is set to, and then you use the chain to gain access to the entire thing?
