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
