Okay, maybe I'm stupid or I don't understand something.

I've done a simple request to and the
http::response[field::location] still has CRLF even with the following
code using value_type's value() function:

    if (res_.result() == status::moved_permanently) {
        const auto it = res_.find(field::location);

        if (it != res_.end())
            cout << "new location: [" << it->value << "]" << std::endl;

The res_ object is a http::response<http::string_body>, And once
printed to the console I have:

    new location: [
