Thanks, tobyink.

I think I will post the working hash version first and then do the reading necessary to learn enough to implement your suggestion. Since this is a learning exercise, I think it would be better to code the next version "long-hand" before trying the MooX method.

There's never enough time to do it right, but always enough time to do it over...

      Thanks for the references, A.M.,

      I have the download version of Modern Perl as well as Learning Perl, Programming Perl, and the Perl Cookbook. I like docs on paper.

[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)
[Corion]: ambrus: Yeah, that's the alternative which I considered, at least for file I/O, but as I only want to simply do HTTP from my Prima app :)
