Net::Curl provides a Perl 6 interface to libcurl. The plan is support the libcurl Easy interface first and run all the libcurl website examples and then support an object-oriented interface.

libcurl is a free and easy-to-use client-side URL transfer library. It supports DICT, FILE, FTP, FTPS, Gopher, HTTP, HTTPS, IMAP, IMAPS, LDAP, LDAPS, POP3, POP3S, RTMP, RTSP, SCP, SFTP, SMTP, SMTPS, Telnet and TFTP. libcurl supports SSL certificates, HTTP POST, HTTP PUT, FTP uploading, HTTP form based upload, proxies, cookies, user+password authentication (Basic, Digest, NTLM, Negotiate, Kerberos), file transfer resume, http proxy tunneling and more!

  • Since Net::Curl uses libcurl, must be found in /usr/lib. To install libcurl on Debian for example, please use the following command:
$ sudo apt-get install libcurl3-dev
  • On Mac OS X, Please use the following command:
$ brew install curl
  • Using zef (a module management tool bundled with Rakudo Star):
$ zef install Net::Curl


To run tests:

$ prove -e "perl6 -Ilib"
