TE request header specifies the transfer encodings the user agent is willing to accept. (you could informally call it
Accept-Transfer-Encoding, which would be more intuitive).
See also the
Transfer-Encoding response header for more details on transfer encodings. Note that
chunked is always acceptable for HTTP/1.1 recipients and you that don't have to specify
"chunked" using the
TE header. However, it is useful for setting if the client is accepting trailer fields in a chunked transfer coding using the "trailers" value.
|Header type||Request header|
|Forbidden header name||yes|
TE: compress TE: deflate TE: gzip TE: trailers // Multiple directives, weighted with the quality value syntax: TE: trailers, deflate;q=0.5
- A format using the Lempel-Ziv-Welch (LZW) algorithm is accepted as a transfer coding name.
- Using the zlib structure is accepted as a transfer coding name.
- A format using the Lempel-Ziv coding (LZ77), with a 32-bit CRC is accepted as a transfer coding name.
- Indicates that the client is willing to accept trailer fields in a chunked transfer coding.
When multiple transfer codings are acceptable, the
qparameter of the quality value syntax can rank codings by preference.
