HTTP Content-Length field

Description

A ContentLengthField object is an HTTP header field in a request or a response message that specifies the length of the payload in bytes.

MATLAB® requires all outbound messages with a payload to contain a Content-Length field. If a message contains a nonempty body, MATLAB creates a Content-Length field based on the length of the data. For more information, see RFC 7231, section 3.3.2. Content-Length.

Response messages might or might not contain this field.
