Rails should offer case-insensitive lookup of HTTP Headers

Reported by Chris Davaz | October 29th, 2009 @ 08:02 PM

HTTP Headers are case-insensitive according to the HTTP specification:

See section 4.2.

Because of this, Rails should offer a convenient way to lookup headers in a case-insensitive fashion. I personally have encountered this as an issue in a production application. I'm willing to fix it myself if pointed in the right direction. A temporary workaround is to copy the response hash and uppercase or lowercase all the keys.
