in reply to This best sums up my view on xmas lights

I'd really like to hang some white lights all around the trim of my house, but I live right next to a small airport. I'd hate to have a Cesna mistake my driveway for a runway.

    Unless your driveway is 20 feet wide, 2200 feet long, and has lamps placed exactly every 100 feet, I wouldn't be worrying too much about that. Oh yea, and something resembling a VASI.

      What the hell is a VASI? Tell me please, because my driveway is exactly 20 feet wide, 2200 feet long, and there's cheap outdoor lighting spaced at precise 100 foot intervals. I need to know what a VASI is and what it looks like so I can go outside and remove whatever I have resembling it immediately!

[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.
