For the sake of maintainability though I think I will avoid using this crafty method.

It is not at all clear to me why you think it need be a maintenance problem. Just wrap it over in a function something like:

sub getWithStatus { my $url = shift; my $content; open my $RAM, '>', \$content; my $stdoutsaved = select; select *$RAM; my $status = getprint( $url ); select $stdoutsaved; close $RAM; return $status, $content; } ... my( $status, $content ) = getWithStatus( $url ); if( $status ne RC_OK ) { die "Get $url failed with HTTP status: $status"; } ...

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    Good point.

    For some reason I envisioned just pasting that inline. Obviously it is appropiate to put in a function.

[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
[ambrus]: Corion: wait, you didn't say POE. You said Prima, let me look up what that is.
[ambrus]: Corion: have you considered just writing an AnyEvent integration for that thing?
[ambrus]: Or perhaps pushing schmorp to write one?
[ambrus]: Also, searching for an existing one on CPAN obviously
[Corion]: Prima, which is mostly cooperative multitasking
[ambrus]: Corion: also (sorry for the obvious ideas) consider running your HTTP thing in a separate process from Prima (separate thread won't work well if you need a perl interpreter on both sides)
