HTML::HeadParser::Liberal - More Liberal HTML Head Section Parsing


use HTML::HeadParser::Liberal;

    <meta name="twitter:card" ...>

    doesn't choke, and you can access this value from HTTP::Headers like


    Note that YOU DO NOT NEED THIS HACK if you're using a recent enough LWP. Because of this I was initially going to let this module die a slow death, but then I have since been told that there are environments stuck with old modules, so I guess there are some situations where this module is still useful.
