I have client that wants me to send him a file via http.
The potential problem here is this file may be rather large (megabytes).
The usual way that I send data through http is via the POST method like...
my $headers = HTTP::Headers->new();
$headers->header('Content-Type' => 'text/plain; charset=utf-8');
$headers->header('Content-Length' => length($sendthis));
my $request = HTTP::Request->new('POST', $url, $headers, $sendthis)
my $browser = LWP::UserAgent->new();
my $response = $browser->request($request);
my $gotthis = $response->content();
This works but can result it memory issues if the variable $sendthis is large.
Is there a better way to send large files via http?
