Lightweight HTTP implementation
*Note:* you should look at the HTTP::Tiny manpage or the LWP manpage before
using this module.
HTTP::Lite is a stand-alone lightweight HTTP/1.1 implementation for perl.
It is not intended as a replacement for the fully-featured LWP module.
Instead, it is intended for use in situations where it is desirable to
install the minimal number of modules to achieve HTTP support, or where LWP
is not a good candidate due to CPU overhead, such as slower processors.
HTTP::Lite is also significantly faster than LWP.
HTTP::Lite is ideal for CGI (or mod_perl) programs or for bundling for
redistribution with larger packages where only HTTP GET and POST
functionality are necessary.
HTTP::Lite supports basic POST and GET operations only. As of 0.2.1,
HTTP::Lite supports HTTP/1.1 and is compliant with the Host header,
necessary for name based virtual hosting. Additionally, HTTP::Lite now
As of 2.0.0 HTTP::Lite now supports a callback to allow processing of
request data as it arrives. This is useful for handling very large files
without consuming memory.
If you require more functionality, such as FTP or HTTPS, please see
libwwwperl (LWP). LWP is a significantly better and more comprehensive
package than HTTP::Lite, and should be used instead of HTTP::Lite whenever
