NAME ^

LWP::UserAgent::Patch::HTTPSHardTimeout - Add hard timeout to HTTPS requests

VERSION ^

version 0.04

SYNOPSIS ^

 use LWP::UserAgent::Patch::HTTPSHardTimeout -timeout => 300;

DESCRIPTION ^

This module contains a simple workaround for hanging issue with HTTPS requests. It wraps send_request() with an alarm() timeout.

FAQ ^

Why not subclass?

By patching, you do not need to replace all the client code which uses LWP::UserAgent (or WWW::Mechanize, and so on).
