HTTP headers

1 Comment

Ever had the need to see what headers a remote web site sends back to you when you request a page with your browser?

You can use curl like this:

# curl --dump-header headers.txt 1> /dev/null

The HTTP headers are saved in the headers.txt file.

    Although I prefer cURL, Wget has something similar with the -S and --save-headers options.
