Theres a way to transfer huge data using chunked data transfer from
HTTP 1.1 spec. Best way to look for info is online doc "HTTP Made Easy"
there you see that you can use this to transfer huge data. Hope this
help. I'll quote the doc:
If a server wants to start sending a response before knowing its total
length (like with long script output), it might use the simple chunked
transfer-encoding, which breaks the complete response into smaller
chunks and sends them in series. You can identify such a response
because it contains the "Transfer-Encoding:Êchunked" header. All
HTTPÊ1.1 clients must be able to receive chunked messages.
A chunked message body contains a series of chunks, followed by a line
with "0" (zero), followed by optional footers (just like headers), and
a blank line. Each chunk consists of two parts:
¥ a line with the size of the chunk data, in hex, possibly followed
by a semicolon and extra parameters you can ignore (none are currently
standard), and ending with CRLF.
¥ the data itself, followed by CRLF.
So a chunked response might look like the following:
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Fri, 31 Dec 1999 23:59:59 GMT
