Configuration Details:

Option Name:broken_posts
Replaces:
Requires:--enable-http-violations
Default Value:Obey RFC 2616.
Suggested Config:

	A list of ACL elements which, if matched, causes Squid to send
	an extra CRLF pair after the body of a PUT/POST request.

	Some HTTP servers has broken implementations of PUT/POST,
	and rely on an extra CRLF pair sent by some WWW clients.

	Quote from RFC2616 section 4.1 on this matter:

	  Note: certain buggy HTTP/1.0 client implementations generate an
	  extra CRLF's after a POST request. To restate what is explicitly
	  forbidden by the BNF, an HTTP/1.1 client must not preface or follow
	  a request with an extra CRLF.

	This clause only supports fast acl types.
	See http://wiki.squid-cache.org/SquidFaq/SquidAcl for details.

Example:
 acl buggy_server url_regex ^http://....
 broken_posts allow buggy_server
