Humm, I admit I do miss mt2k sometimes. Here are a few of his lines that I miss:
  • <mt2k> It is a cheap, lynx/telnet machine
  • <mt2k> is ls -l not usable under Unix Type: L8?
  • mt2k has just finished making a block commenting program for debugging
  • <mt2k> K, merlyn uses functions that don't even exist
  • mt2k wanders through a world of undefined subroutines; all alone
  • <mt2k> Are \r's allowed in a perl script (On a *very* strict server)

[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?
[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
