(.NET Core C#) HTTP GET -- Read Response from Stream

Demonstrates how to send an HTTP GET for a web page, and then read the response from a Stream. The purpose is to fulfill a situation such as the following: "I have a URL and just want the <head> </head> portion of the HTML. This would avoid having to download a potentially enormous web page just to get at header information, such as the <styles>."

//  This example requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
//  See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

Chilkat.Rest rest = new Chilkat.Rest();

//  In this example, we'll get the web page at http://www.nytimes.com/pages/business/index.html
//  The domain is "www.nytimes.com", and the path is "/pages/business/index.html"

//  If we have only the full URL to begin with, it can be loaded into the Chilkat URL object to
//  access the parts:
Chilkat.Url url = new Chilkat.Url();
url.ParseUrl("http://www.nytimes.com/pages/business/index.html");

bool bAutoReconnect = true;
bool success = rest.Connect(url.Host,url.Port,url.Ssl,bAutoReconnect);

//  Send the GET request (This sends the GET request, but does not read the response.)

    return;
}

//  Read the response header.

//  We expect a 200 response status.
if (responseStatusCode != 200) {

    //  then follow it, read the entire response (as shown here), or just call rest.Disconnect

//  Set a 10 second read timeout for the stream.
//  (Give up if no data arrives within 10 seconds after calling a read method.)

//  Create a background thread task to read the response body (which feeds
//  it to the bodyStream object.)
Chilkat.Task readResponseBodyTask = rest.ReadRespBodyStreamAsync(bodyStream,true);

//  Start the task.
