Are you doing a
after you have finished writing to the file?

I'm not familiar with activeperl - but is there a chance it's not flushing the output to the file?

(Although I would *expect* Perl to cleanly flush to and then close the filehandle when the script ends!?)

    serf, good guess but activeperl behaves no differently than Perl on any other box in this regard. The buffer will be flushed and the filehandle closed when the program ends.

[ambrus]: Corion: ah, so you want a library that parses HTTP, and you want to do the IO yourself, and don't want a full AnyEvent wrapper.
[ambrus]: Corion: I think I parsed a HTTP header from a string with LWP once. You can definitely use that to create a HTTP message too. The problme is
[ambrus]: that if you do that, you'd have to find where each HTTP response ends, which is nontrivial if you want persistent connections (essential for performance if you have small requests).
[Corion]: ambrus: Yes, ideally an API that I feed the incoming data piece by piece and that I can ask "is that response done" and "what should I do next" and "please construct the appropriate redirect for me"
[Corion]: ambrus: Yes, ideally the module would do all that nasty stuff for me and give me a way to ask it what the current situation is
[ambrus]: Corion: you could also consider using some wrapper over the multi interface of curl, I think Net::Curl might be a good one, since implementing enough of what it expects from the event loop might be easier than a full AnyEvent interface.
[ambrus]: Corion: you could also consider using IO::Async and its POE driver and some HTTP module for it, but I don't know if that would solve your problems with AnyEvent+POE
