DESCRIPTION

This module patches LWP::UserAgent (which is used by LWP::Simple, WWW::Mechanize, among others) so that HTTP responses are logged using Log::Any.

Response body is logged in category LWP_Response_Body.* so it can be separated. For example, to dump response body dumps to directory instead of file:

 use Log::Any::App '$log',
    -category_level => {LWP_Response_Body => 'off'},
    -dir            => {
        path           => "/path/to/dir",
        level          => 'off',
        category_level => {LWP_Response_Body => 'trace'},
    };

FAQ

Why not subclass?

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

SEE ALSO

Use Net::HTTP::Methods::Patch::LogRequest to log raw HTTP requests being sent to servers.
