public void add_feature (SessionFeature feature)

Adds feature's functionality to this.

You can also add a feature to the session at construct time by using the SOUP_SESSION_ADD_FEATURE property.

See the main Session documentation for information on what features are present in sessions by default.

Example: Basic soup request, sync:

public static int main (string[] args) {
// Create a session:
Soup.Session session = new Soup.Session ();

// Add a logger:
Soup.Logger logger = new Soup.Logger (Soup.LoggerLogLevel.MINIMAL, -1);
session.add_feature (logger);

// Send a request:
Soup.Message msg = new Soup.Message ("GET", "");
session.send_message (msg);

// Process the result:
msg.response_headers.foreach ((name, val) => {
print ("%s = %s\n", name, val);

print ("Status Code: %u\n", msg.status_code);
print ("Message length: %lld\n", msg.response_body.length);
print ("Data: \n%s\n", (string);
return 0;
