IO::All::LWP - Extends IO::All to HTTP URLs
use IO::All; $content < io('http://example.org'); # GET webpage into scalar io('http://example.org') > io('index.html'); # GET to file "hello\n" > io('http://example.org/index.html'); # PUT webpage # two ways of getting a page with a password: $content < io('http://me:email@example.com'); $content < io('http://example.org')->user('me')->password('secret');
The SYNOPSIS shows some simple typical examples, but there are many other interesting combinations with other IO::All features! For example, you can get an HTTP URL and write the content to a socket, or to an FTP URL, of to a DBM file.
This is a subclass of IO::All::LWP. The only new method is
http, which can be used to create a blank IO::All::HTTP object; or it can also take an HTTP URL as a parameter. Note that in most cases it is simpler just to call io('http://example.com'), which calls the
http method automatically.
The same operators from IO::All may be used. < GETs an HTTP URL; > PUTs to an HTTP URL.
