NAME

LWP::UserAgent::Patch::HTTPSHardTimeout - Add hard timeout to HTTPS requests

VERSION

This document describes version 0.05 of LWP::UserAgent::Patch::HTTPSHardTimeout (from Perl distribution LWP-UserAgent-Patch-HTTPSHardTimeout), released on 2015-08-17.

SYNOPSIS

 use LWP::UserAgent::Patch::HTTPSHardTimeout -timeout => 300;

DESCRIPTION

This module contains a simple workaround for hanging issue with HTTPS requests. It wraps send_request() with an alarm() timeout.

Can be used with WWW::Mechanize because it uses LWP::UserAgent.

FAQ

Why not subclass?

By patching, you do not need to replace all the client code which uses LWP::UserAgent (or WWW::Mechanize, and so on).
