SYNOPSIS

 use Net::HTTP::Methods::Patch::LogRequest;

 # now all your LWP HTTP requests are logged

Sample script and output:

 % LOG_SHOW_CATEGORY=1 TRACE=1 perl -MLog::Any::App \
   -MNet::HTTP::Methods::Patch::LogRequest -MWWW::Mechanize \
   -e'$mech=WWW::Mechanize->new; $mech->get("http://www.google.com/")'

DESCRIPTION

This module patches Net::HTTP::Methods so that raw LWP HTTP request is logged using Log::Any. If you look into LWP::Protocol::http's source code, you'll see that it is already doing that (albeit commented):

  my $req_buf = $socket->format_request($method, $fullpath, @h);
  #print "------\n$req_buf\n------\n";

FAQ

Why not subclass?

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