PEAR classes providing an easy way to perform HTTP requests

PHP5 rewrite of HTTP_Request package. Provides cleaner API and pluggable Adapters. Currently available are

  • Socket adapter, based on old HTTP_Request code,
  • Curl adapter, wraps around PHP’s cURL extension,
  • Mock adapter, to use for testing packages dependent on HTTP_Request2.

Supports POST requests with data and file uploads, authentication, cookies, proxies, gzip and deflate encodings, monitoring the request progress with Observers.
