Usage

resp_retry_after(resp)

Arguments

resp

An HTTP response object, as created by req_perform().

Value

Scalar double giving the number of seconds to wait before retrying a request.

Examples

resp <- response(headers = "Retry-After: 30")
resp %>% resp_retry_after()
#> [1] 30

resp <- response(headers = "Retry-After: Mon, 20 Sep 2025 21:44:05 UTC")
resp %>% resp_retry_after()
#> [1] 94270719
