NAME

LWP::UserAgent::Patch::Plugin - Change use of LWP::UserAgent to that of LWP::UserAgent::Plugin

VERSION

This document describes version 0.001 of LWP::UserAgent::Patch::Plugin (from Perl distribution LWP-UserAgent-Patch-Plugin), released on 2019-04-15.

SYNOPSIS

First, invoke this patch. From Perl:

 use LWP::UserAgent::Patch::Plugin
     # -set_plugins => ['Cache', CustomRetry=>{strategy=>"Exponential", strategy_options=>{initial_delay=>0.5, max_delay=>300}}],
 ;

or:

 use LWP::UserAgent::Patch::Plugin;
 LWP::UserAgent::Plugin->set_plugins('Cache', ...);

From command-line:

 % LWP_USERAGENT_PLUGINS='["Cache","CustomRetry",{"strategy":"Exponential","strategy_options":{"initial_delay":0.5}}]' \
     perl -MLWP::UserAgent::Patch::Plugin script-that-uses-lwp-useragent.pl ...

Now every usage of LWP::UserAgent, e.g.:

 my $response = LWP::UserAgent->new->get("http://www.example.com/");

will become:

 my $response = LWP::UserAgent::Plugin->new->get("http://www.example.com/");

DESCRIPTION

This module replaces every instantiation of LWP::UserAgent to instantiate LWP::UserAgent::Plugin instead, so you can use LWP::UserAgent::Plugin's plugins. Note that instantiation of other LWP::UserAgent subclasses, e.g. WWW::Mechanize is not replaced with instantiation of LWP::UserAgent::Plugin.

CONFIGURATION

-set_plugins

Array. Will be passed to LWP::UserAgent::Plugin's set_plugins(). You can also set plugins by calling set_plugins() yourself.
