please see the message thread 'ASCII NUL Separated List" in October 2001
this should answer your question.

if I understand your question correctly, you should just have to specify
the url (including the '?' and any parameters)

httperf simply issues requests for URLs that you specify. you will have
to create the files on the server.

I'm not exactly sure I understand what motivates your question. the HTTP
protocol currently requires requests to be serviced in the order they
were issued. the responses do not contain the name of the file, so an
HTTP client would not be able to verify that the response is in fact the

with wlog you need to provide a file that contains a list of URLs to
request. with wset, URLs will be generated in the manner described in the
man page (in either case httperf will issue the requests, but does not
create the files on the server). I don't think these options can be used
at the same time.
