Range HTTP request header indicates the part of a document that the server should return. Several parts can be requested with one
Range header at once, and the server may send back these ranges in a multipart document. If the server sends back ranges, it uses the
Partial Content for the response. If the ranges are invalid, the server returns the
Range Not Satisfiable error. The server can also ignore the
Range header and return the whole document with a
200 status code.

- The unit in which ranges are specified. This is usually
- An integer in the given unit indicating the beginning of the request range.
- An integer in the given unit indicating the end of the requested range. This value is optional and, if omitted, the end of the document is taken as the end of the range.
- An integer in the given unit indicating the number of units at the end of the file to return.
