BuffersGenerator

Description

Implements the BuffersGenerator concept for any concrete instance of the http::message template. http::message_generator takes ownership of a message on construction, erasing the concrete type from the interface. This makes it practical for use in server applications to implement request handling:

template <class Body, class Fields>
http::message_generator handle_request(
    string_view doc_root,
    http::request<Body, Fields>&& request);

The beast::write and beast::async_write operations are provided for BuffersGenerator. The http::message::keep_alive property is made available for use after writing the message.
