NAME
    HTTP::Tiny - A tiny HTTP client

VERSION
    version 0.002

SYNOPSIS
        use HTTP::Tiny;

        my $response = HTTP::Tiny->new->get('http://example.com/');

        print "$response->{status} $response->{reason}\n";

        while (my ($k, $v) = each %{$response->{headers}}) {
            for (ref $v eq 'ARRAY' ? @$v : $v) {
                print "$k: $_\n";
            }
        }

        print $response->{content} if defined $response->{content};

DESCRIPTION
    This is a very simple HTTP/1.1 client, designed primarily for doing
    simple GET requests without the overhead of a large framework like
    LWP::UserAgent.

    It is more correct and more complete than HTTP::Lite. It supports
    proxies (currently only non-authenticating ones) and redirection. It
    also correctly resumes after EINTR.

    Additional documentation and improved tests will be forthcoming.

METHODS
  new
        $http = HTTP::Tiny->new( %attributes );

    This constructor returns a new HTTP::Tiny object. Valid attributes
    include:

    *   agent

        A user-agent string (defaults to 'HTTP::Tiny/$VERSION')

    *   default_headers

        A hashref of default headers to apply to requests

    *   max_redirect

        Maximum number of redirects allowed (defaults to 5)

    *   max_size

        Maximum response size (only when not using a data callback)

    *   proxy

        URL of a proxy server to use

    *   timeout

        Request timeout in seconds (default is 60)

  get
        $response = $http->get($url);
        $response = $http->get($url, \%options);

    Executes a "GET" request for the given URL. Internally, it just calls
    "request()" with 'GET' as the method. See "request()" for valid options
    and a description of the response.

  request
        $response = $http->request($method, $url);
        $response = $http->request($method, $url, \%options);

    Executes an HTTP request of the given method type ('GET', 'HEAD', 'PUT',
    etc.) on the given URL. A hashref of options may be appended to modify
    the request.

    Valid options are:

    *   headers

        A hashref containing headers to include with the request

    *   content

        A scalar to include as the body of the request OR a code reference
        that will be called iteratively to produce the body of the response

    *   data_callback

        A code reference that will be called with chunks of the response
        body

    [XXX describe how callbacks work]

    The "response" method returns a hashref containing the response. The
    hashref will have the following keys:

    *   status

        The HTTP status code of the response

    *   reason

        The response phrase returned by the server

    *   content

        The body of the response. If the response does not have any content
        or if a data callback is provided to consume the response body, this
        will be the empty string

    *   headers

        A hashref of header fields. All header field names will be
        normalized to be lower case. If a header is repeated, the value will
        be an arrayref; it will otherwise be a scalar string containing the
        value

    On an exception during the execution of the request, the "status" field
    will contain 599, and the "content" field will contain the text of the
    exception.
