request_post(path, data, initheader = nil) public

Sends a POST request to the path and gets a response, as an HTTPResponse object.

When called with a block, yields an HTTPResponse object. The body of this response will not have been read yet; the caller can process it using HTTPResponse#read_body, if desired.

Returns the response.

This method never raises Net::* exceptions.

    # example
    response = http.request_post('/cgi-bin/nice.rb', 'datadatadata...')
    p response.status
    puts response.body          # body is already read

    # using block
    http.request_post('/cgi-bin/nice.rb', 'datadatadata...') {|response|
      p response.status
      p response['content-type']
      response.read_body do |str|   # read body now
        print str
