Question C++ http parser for Linux


I need a free http parser written in C++ to parse request and respond lines, headers and body fields.

I did some research on the web, but could not come across a "totally free" and fully-functional HTTP parser.

Do you know any such libraries to suggest ?

Unfortunately the Apache libraries such as httpcore are pretty much Java oriented.

There is a basic C++ http library called HappyHTTP.

For a more sophisticated library, try libcurl. It has C++ bindings (amongst others), and the license is MIT/X.

If you end up building your own, perhaps you could use the asio library from boost for the underlying network code.
