URI::Fetch::Response - Feed response for URI::Fetch


    use URI::Fetch;
    my $res = URI::Fetch->fetch('')
        or die URI::Fetch->errstr;
    print $res->content;


URI::Fetch::Response encapsulates the response from fetching a feed using URI::Fetch.



The contents of the feed.


The URI of the feed. If the feed was moved, this reflects the new URI; otherwise, it will match the URI that you passed to fetch.


The ETag that was returned in the response, if any.


The Last-Modified date (in seconds since the epoch) that was returned in the response, if any.


The status of the response, which will match one of the following enumerations:

  • URI::Fetch::URI_OK()


  • URI::Fetch::URI_GONE()



The HTTP status code from the response.


The HTTP::Response object returned from the fetch.




Wrappers around the $res->response methods of the same name, for convenience.

Note: there is one difference from the behaviour of HTTP::Response. If you are using a cache and get a 304 response, but the data is retrieved from the cache, then is_success will return true, because res->content is usable.


The Content-Type header from the response.
