Normally, HTTP is used for request-reply patterns, where the server
receives the request, does some processing to it, and then sends back
In a faceless environment like Server, "put" goes to stdout, yes? So
when we say "put tData", then the contents of tData are handed back to
Apache which then sends them along to the client.
So what happens when I have a script that uses multiple "put" statements?
Does LC Server buffer all "put" output together and send it as one
string back to the client?
If so, why do I see faster results if I collect data myself and use only
If not, how does it write a meaningful header, since the length can't be
known in advance?
What exactly is the Server engine doing with "put"?
