Gorby has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello Wise Monks. Is there a way for me to execut http GET and POST commands using a PERL module? I know LWP:Simple can do that quite efficiently, but what I need is a module that can connect to a port other than port 80, and still do the usual http requests like GET and POST, etc. Can you help me? Thanks in advance. Gorby
