Set value of media type parameter


newType = setParameter(mediaType,name,value)


newType = setParameter(mediaType,name,value) returns a copy of the specified mediaType parameter with the parameter name set to value, creating one if it does not exist. Parameter name matching is case-insensitive. If a parameter exists with the same name, but different case, the case is changed to the specified name. If more than one match is found, only the last value is set.

A new parameter is added to the end of the list of parameters. If a q parameter exists in the list, the new parameter is treated as part of the accept-params rather than the media-type.
