NAME

IO::All::Gopher - Extends IO::All to Gopher URLs

SYNOPSIS

    use IO::All;

    io('gopher://example.org/pub/xyz') > io('xyz');      # GET to file

DESCRIPTION

This module extends IO::All for dealing with Gopher URLs. Note that you don't need to use it explicitly, as it is autoloaded by IO::All whenever it sees something that looks like a Gopher URL.

METHODS

This is a subclass of IO::All::LWP. The only new method is gopher, which can be used to create a blank IO::All::Gopher object; or it can also take an Gopher URL as a parameter. Note that in most cases it is simpler just to call io('gopher://example.com'), which calls the gopher method automatically.

OPERATOR OVERLOADING

Read-only operators from IO::All may be used. < GETs a Gopher URL.

SEE ALSO

IO::All::LWP, IO::All, LWP.
