in reply to $foo->bar = 14;

As shotgunefx pointed out, there's unfortunately no way to constrain the value assigned in anyway, neither before nor after the assignment. That renders the attribute nearly useless as far as I'm concerned.. a pity, since it'd be a lovely way to offer a bit of syntactical sugar. You could even support both the ->bar("baz") and the ->bar = "baz" style at the same time, but that's a moot consideration as is. :(

[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
