__init__() → None
__init__(copy: HTTPEntityTag) → None
__init__(weak: bool, tag: str) → None

This constructor accepts an explicit weak flag and a literal (not quoted) tag string.

__init__(text: str) → None

This constructor accepts a string as formatted from an HTTP server (e.g. the tag is quoted, with an optional W/ prefix.)

assign(copy: HTTPEntityTag) → HTTPEntityTag
Return type

HTTPEntityTag

compareTo(other: HTTPEntityTag) → int

Returns a number less than zero if this HTTPEntityTag sorts before the other one, greater than zero if it sorts after, or zero if they are equivalent.

getString() → str

Returns the entity tag formatted for sending to an HTTP server (the tag is quoted, with a conditional W prefix).

getTag() → str

Returns the tag as a literal string.

isWeak() → bool

Returns true if the entity tag is marked as “weak”. A consistent weak entity tag does not guarantee that its resource has not changed in any way, but it does promise that the resource has not changed in any semantically meaningful way.

output(out: ostream) → None
strongEquiv(other: HTTPEntityTag) → bool

Returns true if the two tags have “strong” equivalence: they are the same tag, and both are “strong”.

weakEquiv(other: HTTPEntityTag) → bool

Returns true if the two tags have “weak” equivalence: they are the same tag, and one or both may be “weak”.
