WebFS::FileCopy::Put - Object for putting data to either file or ftp URI


 use WebFS::FileCopy::Put;

 my $req = HTTP::Request->new(PUT => 'file:/tmp/zzz');
 my $put = WebFS::FileCopy::Put->new($req);
 if ($put) {
   $put->print "Content goes here\n";
   my $res = $put->close;
   print $res->as_string, "\n";
 } else {
   my $res = $@;
   print $res->message, "\n";


An WebFS::FileCopy::Put object is used to put data to a remote file on an FTP server or a local file. The location is specified by using a LWP::Request object.


    The following methods are available:

    new request

    Returns either an WebFS::FileCopy::Put::FTP or WebFS::FileCopy::PUT::File object if a file or FTP put request is passed. If invalid arguments are passed to new or if the put cannot be created, then undef is returned and $@ will contain a valid HTTP::Response.

    print buffer

    Put the contents of buffer to the PUT file.


    Close the PUT file and return a LWP::Response, which can be used to test for the success or failure of the close using the is_success method.


See also the WebFS::FileCopy and LWP::Simple manual pages.
