( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
If I'm ever in the position where I need to slurp a file I'll go with IO::File's handy getcontents() method
my $contents = IO::File->new($filename)->getcontents();
I'm not sure how that benchmarks, but I'm of the opinion that it looks much more elegant ;)

    [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?
    [ambrus]: Or perhaps pushing schmorp to write one?
    [ambrus]: Also, searching for an existing one on CPAN obviously
