Abstract

To accommodate byte-range requests for content that has data appended over time, this document defines semantics that allow an HTTP client and a server to perform byte-range GET and HEAD requests that start at an arbitrary byte offset within the representation and end at an indeterminate offset.


For the definition of Status, see RFC 2026.

For the definition of Stream, see RFC 4844.
