[erlang-questions] Re: ssl and {active, once} - bug?

You must switch to http header packet processing !
Use {packet, httph} or {packet,httph_bin} after the initial request.
End of headers is signaled by http_eoh.
After http_eoh you must switch to content processing {packet, 0} and then read possible content.
The size of the content is givent by the header Content-Length or if chunked encoding is used
the size given before each chunk.

Hope this helps
