Send PATCH request to a server.
PATCH(url = NULL, config = list(), ..., body = NULL, encode = c("multipart", "form", "json", "raw"), handle = NULL)
the url of the page to retrieve
One of the following:
FALSE: No body. This is typically not used with
PATCH, but can be useful if you need to send a
bodyless request (like
NULL: An empty body
"": A length 0 body
upload_file("path/"): The contents of a file. The mime

as the second argument to
A character or raw vector: sent as is in body. Use
content_type to tell the server what sort of data

A named list: See details for encode.
If the body is a named list, how should it be encoded? Can be one of form (application/x-www-form-urlencoded), multipart, (multipart/form-data), or json (application/json).
For "multipart", list elements can be strings or objects created by
upload_file. For "form", elements are coerced to strings

I() to prevent double-escaping. For "json",
parameters are automatically "unboxed" (i.e. length 1 vectors are
converted to scalars). To preserve a length 1 vector as a vector,
I(). For "raw", either a character or raw vector. You'll

requests to the same scheme/host/port combo. This substantially reduces
connection time, and ensures that cookies are maintained over multiple
requests to the same host. See
