in reply to In this poll, I

Am I the only one that dares to confess that I voted "did not vote" for the pure joy of acting irrationally? I'm sure there are more of my kind.
I'm almost sure that all of you that voted "did not vote", whenever you check out a new pocket calculator or examine a new programming language, try what happens when you divide something with zero.

[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
[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?
