Comment: Re:HTTP hints at a solution (Score 1) 203

A HTTP response can not start until the whole request has finished. So sending a status code is impossible.

The same problem happens if you try to POST a file that is too large. The webserver knows this after the Content-Length header but cannot respond until after you send the whole file. The only thing the webserver can do is to close the connection.

Due to lack of disk space, this fortune database has been discontinued.
