No such thing as a small change

( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I understand the temptation to interpret the behaviour changes from 5.24.0 to 5.24.1 as suggesting that this is where to problem lies but often it isn't that clear-cut and I'd be surprised if this turned out to be a Perl version bug although it could possibly be tied to subtle behaviour changes for ambiguous code - seeing some code snippets may help rule this out.

I'd be more inclined to look at the dependent module version changes - try to update LWP and Crypt::SSL IO::Socket::SSL + Net::SSLeay etc to most recent available versions.

  • Are you using strict and warnings?
  • Can you isolate a failing case URL consistently or is this intermittent and not URL specific
  • What are the MIME types of the responses? - eg are these file downloads or just plain text/html?
  • Have you tested the URLs with other download approaches other than LWP (curl CLI or other Perl HTTP client? Possibly test with Mojo::UserAgent)
  • Is the LWP Client running inside a docker container? Assume not but If so - What is the container O/S?
  • Does the LWP Client process terminate after receiving a result - could it be terminating before processing the response or mishandling buffer flush?
  • Are the LWP requests going to HTTP or HTTPS and is this consistent ?
  • What versions of LWP etc are bundled with each Perl version? Perhaps also check whether the module path libraries are distinct and not shared.
  • Have you confirmed this behaviour on Windows machines with only 5.24.0 installed and seen the behaviour rectify on a clean 5.24.1?
    • I'd first try use IO::Handle;OUT->autoflush(1) to see what happens.

      May also be worth looking at the HTTP headers included both client and server-side as tightening the HTTP dialogue parameters may resolve.

      Some small blocks of code that show the main LWP calls and a few lines of relevant log files could be useful to help others diagnose also

      Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
      and:  <code> code here </code>
      to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

      • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
      • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
        <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
      • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
      • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
