Low level access to the HTTP protocol
HTTPMHTTP - this library provides reasonably low level access to the HTTP protocol, for perl. This does not replace LWP what possibly could
- but is a cut for speed. It also supports all of HTTP 1.0, so you have GET, POST, PUT, HEAD, and DELETE. Some support of HTTP 1.1 is available - specifically Transfer-Encoding = chunked and the Keep-Alive extensions.
Additionally - rudimentary SSL support compiled in. This effectively enables negotiation of TLS, but does not validate the certificates.
A way faster http access library that uses C extension based on mhttp to do the calls.
