WARNING: This software is obsolete, and was last tested under Windows XP in 2005. You should not run this software on modern Windows computers. The software is posted here for historical / research purposes.

 Given a hypertext transfer protocol URL, this program shows the headers that the server sends in response to a HEAD request. These headers include valuable information, such as identification of the remote server's software, remote time and date, the MIME type and size of a file, and various other pieces of information. Most web browsers today don't let you see the information that ViewHEAD returns.
