NAME

HTTP::Body - HTTP Body Parser

SYNOPSIS

    use HTTP::Body;
    
    sub handler : method {
        my ( $class, $r ) = @_;

        my $content_type   = $r->headers_in->get('Content-Type');
        my $content_length = $r->headers_in->get('Content-Length');
        
        my $body   = HTTP::Body->new( $content_type, $content_length );
        my $length = $content_length;

        while ( $length ) {

            $r->read( my $buffer, ( $length < 8192 ) ? $length : 8192 );

            $length -= length($buffer);
            
            $body->add($buffer);
        }
        
        my $uploads     = $body->upload;     # hashref
        my $params      = $body->param;      # hashref
        my $param_order = $body->param_order # arrayref
        my $body        = $body->body;       # IO::Handle
    }

DESCRIPTION

HTTP::Body parses chunks of HTTP POST data and supports application/octet-stream, application/json, application/x-www-form-urlencoded, and multipart/form-data.

Chunked bodies are supported by not passing a length value to new().

It is currently used by Catalyst to parse POST bodies.

NOTES

When parsing multipart bodies, temporary files are created to store any uploaded files. You must delete these temporary files yourself after processing them, or set $body->cleanup(1) to automatically delete them at DESTROY-time.

METHODS

new

Constructor. Takes content type and content length as parameters, returns a HTTP::Body object.

add

Add string to internal buffer. Will call spin unless done. returns length before adding self.

body

accessor for the body.

chunked

Returns 1 if the request is chunked.

cleanup

Set to 1 to enable automatic deletion of temporary files at DESTROY-time.

content_length

Returns the content-length for the body data if known. Returns -1 if the request is chunked.

content_type

Returns the content-type of the body data.

init

return self.

length

Returns the total length of data we expect to read if known. In the case of a chunked request, returns the amount of data read so far.

trailing_headers

If a chunked request body had trailing headers, trailing_headers will return an HTTP::Headers object populated with those headers.

spin

Abstract method to spin the io handle.

state

Returns the current state of the parser.

param

Get/set body parameters.

upload

Get/set file uploads.

tmpdir

Specify a different path for temporary files. Defaults to the system temporary path.

param_order

Returns the array ref of the param keys in the order how they appeared on the body
