NAME

URL::Exists - test whether a URL exists, when you don't care about the contents

SYNOPSIS

 use URL::Exists qw/ url_exists /;

 if (url_exists($url)) {
    ...
 }

DESCRIPTION

This module is useful where you're only interested in whether the file referenced by a URL is present, and don't actually care about the contents.

At the moment it just supports HTTP URLs, but I may add other schemes, if there's any demand / interest.
