in reply to LWP is not SIGPIPE safe?

I am failing to see a question in your comments. I will assume that your question is along the lines of "why, if HTTP::Tiny has this protection, does not LWP?"

Perhaps you can make a case for it on the mailing list (as found on the LWP documentation page), or create a patch and submit it on the github repository.

    Question is in subject of this topic
      Answer to this question is in the body of the question ;) As you can see from the code it is not handling SIGPIPE itself. On the other hand nothing prevents you from setting handler in your script from which you're using LWP.
        If so, then it is a bug. Because it is even not documented, that I should install sigpipe handler myself.
        Ok, it seems I should make test and report it.
