Yet another HTTP client implementation by NaHi

httpclient gives something like the functionality of libwww-perl LWP in Ruby. httpclient formerly known as http-access2.


* methods like GET/HEAD/POST/* via HTTP/1.1.
* HTTPSSSL, Cookies, proxy, authenticationDigest, NTLM, Basic, etc.
* asynchronous HTTP request, streaming HTTP request.
* by contrast with net/http in standard distribution;
      o Cookies support
      o MT-safe
      o streaming POST POST with File/IO
      o Digest auth
      o Negotiate/NTLM auth for WWW-Authenticate requires net/htlm module
      o NTLM auth for Proxy-Authenticate requires Win32/sspi module
      o extensible with filter interface
      o you dont have to care HTTP/1.1 persistent connection httpclient cares instead of you
* Not supported now
      o Cache
      o Rather advanced HTTP/1.1 usage such as Range, deflate, etc. of course you can set it in header by yourself
