   String^ method;
   method = myHttpWebResponse->Method;
   if ( String::Compare( method, "GET" ) == 0 )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "\nThe 'GET' method was successfully invoked on the following Web Server : {0}",
         myHttpWebResponse->Server );
   }
   // Releases the resources of the response.
   myHttpWebResponse->Close();
}
