AcornHTTP is designed very flexibel but it is limited to the classical
HTTP Methods.

During the time a couple of other HTTP methods have been defined for various
purposes e.g. for WebDAV, CalDAV etc. which are more or minor popular.

I expanded AcornHTTP as follows to cope with additional HTTP methods.
Every application which wants to use AcornHTTP with a HTTP non standard
method has to register this method by using SWI HTTP_RegisterMethod
Registers in

r1 - Method flags (meaning see below)

Registers out
r2 - Number of method to use within other AcornHTTP SWIs or

Any number in method range 1-127 may be returned as valid result except the

During start of an URL fetch. Acorn HTTP tries to look up the text used
at beginning of the first line of the URL. This was hardcoded. If no
translation is found launching of the URL will fail. I added a look up
into the array here. If there is an entry inside the array for the method
the text given inside UsrMthds as "Method" will be used to launch the URL.
Additionally flags can be defined. The only usage in the moment is to emulate
internal AcornHTTP header behaviour of PUT/POST or GET for the additional
