try {
    // Create a web request for "www.msn.com".
     HttpWebRequest myHttpWebRequest = (HttpWebRequest) WebRequest.Create("http://www.msn.com");

    // Get the headers associated with the request.
    WebHeaderCollection myWebHeaderCollection = myHttpWebRequest.Headers;

    // Set the Cache-Control header.
    myWebHeaderCollection.Set("Cache-Control", "no-cache");

    // Get the associated response for the above request.
     HttpWebResponse myHttpWebResponse = (HttpWebResponse) myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse();

    // Print the headers of the request to console.
    Console.WriteLine("Print request headers after adding Cache-Control for first request:");
    printHeaders(myHttpWebRequest.Headers);

    // Remove the Cache-Control header for the new request.
    myWebHeaderCollection.Remove("Cache-Control");

    // Get the response for the new request.
    myHttpWebResponse = (HttpWebResponse) myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse();

    // Print the headers of the new request without the Cache-Control header.
    Console.WriteLine("Print request headers after removing Cache-Control for the new request:");
    printHeaders(myHttpWebRequest.Headers);
    myHttpWebResponse.Close();
}
