$Id$ -------- Abstract -------- POE::Component::Client::HTTP is an asynchronous, event driven HTTP user agent. It accepts events containing HTTP::Request objects, and it returns events carrying HTTP::Response objects. It supports https and simultaneous HTTP transactions. ------------ Requirements ------------ POE::Component::Client::HTTP requires http://poe.perl.org/ to be available. Transient network problems (or testing the module from a disconnected machine) may cause it to fail. This module requires POE, HTTP::Request, and HTTP::Response. The requirements are encoded in Makefile.PL, so the CPAN shell should do the right thing. If this is installed without the CPAN shell, the person installing it will have to do the right thing manually. SSL (https) support requires Net::SSLeay::Handle. ------------------ Basic Installation ------------------ POE::Component::Client::HTTP may be installed through the CPAN shell in the usual CPAN shell manner. This typically is: $ perl -MCPAN -e 'intstall POE::Component::Client::HTTP' You can also read this README from the CPAN shell: $ perl -MCPAN -e shell cpan> readme POE::Component::Client::HTTP And you can install the component from the CPAN prompt as well: cpan> install POE::Component::Client::HTTP ------------------- Manual Installation ------------------- POE::Component::Client::HTTP can also be installed manually. <ftp://ftp.cpan.org/pub/CPAN/authors/id/R/RC/RCAPUTO/> or a similarly named directory at your favorite CPAN mirror should hold the latest version. Downloading and unpacking the distribution are left as exercises for the reader. To build and test it: perl Makefile.PL make test The test programs, t/01_get.t and t/02_put.t, make excellent sample programs. If you would like to see more details about the tests' operations, edit them and set their DEBUG constants to any value Perl considers "true". When you're ready to install the component: make install It should now be ready to use. Thanks for reading! -- Rocco Caputo / email@example.com / poe.perl.org / poe.sourceforge.net
