LWP::UserAgent::Patch::HTTPSHardTimeout - Add hard timeout to HTTPS requests
This document describes version 0.06 of LWP::UserAgent::Patch::HTTPSHardTimeout (from Perl distribution LWP-UserAgent-Patch-HTTPSHardTimeout), released on 2017-07-10.
use LWP::UserAgent::Patch::HTTPSHardTimeout -timeout => 300;
This module contains a simple workaround for hanging issue with HTTPS requests. It wraps send_request() with an alarm() timeout.
By patching, you do not need to replace all the client code which uses LWP::UserAgent (or WWW::Mechanize, and so on).
