       ne_set_request_body_buffer, ne_set_request_body_fd,
       ne_set_request_body_fd64 - include a message body with a request


       #include <ne_request.h>

       void ne_set_request_body_buffer(ne_request *req, const char *buf,
                                       size_t count);

       int ne_set_request_body_fd(ne_request *req, int fd, off_t begin,
                                  off_t length);

       int ne_set_request_body_fd64(ne_request *req, int fd, off64_t begin,
                                    off64_t length);


       The ne_set_request_body_buffer function specifies that a message body
       should be included with the body, which is stored in the count bytes
       buffer buf.

       The ne_set_request_body_fd function can be used to include a message
       body with a request which is read from a file descriptor. The body is
       read from the file descriptor fd, which must be a associated with a
       seekable file (not a pipe, socket, or FIFO).  count bytes are read,
       beginning at offset begin (hence, passing begin as zero means the body
       is read from the beginning of the file).

       If the NE_LFS macro is defined, then the ne_set_request_body_fd64
       function is also available, to provide large file support. This
       function can be used on 32-bit platforms supporting the LFS standard;
       the offset and length parameters can then be passed as 64-bit values.
       When using large files, fd must be opened using open64 or by passing
       the O_LARGEFILE flag to open.

       For all the above functions, the source of the request body must
       survive until the request has been dispatched; neither the memory
       buffer passed to ne_set_request_body_buffer nor the file descriptor
       passed to ne_set_request_body_fd or ne_set_request_body_fd64 are copied
