Gets a handle on the request payload data.



the session to interrogate


returns the IO object.

Return Values

0 on success, or an errno value indicating the cause of the problem if unsuccessful.

The returned IO object will decode any transfer encoding that was applied to the incoming request and return the raw data on each io_wrapper_read() call invoked on the object.

Each call returns a new IO object that references the session. If buffered operations are used on this IO object, and multiple instances exist, the behavior of the stream will be undefined. Regular block IO reads should behave in a predictable manner (io_wrapper_read).

The system does not guarantee that the IO object is seekable; some incoming transfer encodings may make this impractical. If a handler requires the ability to seek, then it should consider copying the contents of the stream to some other storage.

Reading from the io object may result in EAGAIN if the upload has not yet completed.
