HTTP requests need to have a response that uses status codes to let browsers or HTTP clients know if a request was handled successfully or some other outcome has happened.

HTTP status codes are numbers, which are usually not human friendly because they do not mean anything unless the developer looks up or remembers their meaning of all the HTTP status codes that you use in an application.

This class provides a more human friendly solution to issue HTTP status codes that consists in passing just the text message of the HTTP status, so the class automatically determines the HTTP status code numbers.
