NAME ^

LWP::UserAgent::Patch::LogRequestContent - Log HTTP request content (body)

VERSION ^

version 0.01

SYNOPSIS ^

 use LWP::UserAgent::Patch::LogRequestContent;

 # now all your LWP HTTP request content are logged

Sample script and output:

 % TRACE=1 perl -MLog::Any::App
   -MNet::HTTP::Methods::Patch::LogRequest \
   -MLWP::UserAgent::Patch::LogRequestContent \
   -MLWP::UserAgent \
   -e'$ua = LWP::UserAgent->new;
      $ua->post("http://localhost:5000/", {a=>1, b=>2});'

 [cat LWP.UserAgent.Patch.LogRequestContent]HTTP request body (len=7):
 a=1&b=2

 [cat Net.HTTP.Methods.Patch.LogRequest]HTTP request (proto=http, len=186):
 POST / HTTP/1.1
 TE: deflate,gzip;q=0.3
 Connection: TE, close
 Host: localhost:5000
 User-Agent: libwww-perl/6.04
 Content-Length: 7
 Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded

Or you can also use via Log::Any::For::LWP.

DESCRIPTION ^

This module patches LWP::UserAgent (which is used by LWP::Simple, WWW::Mechanize, among others) so that HTTP request contents are logged using Log::Any.

FAQ ^

Why not subclass?

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

Why is the request content logged before request headers (when using with Net::HTTP::Methods::Patch::LogRequest)?

Yup, it's ugly. I'm working on that.

SEE ALSO ^

Use Net::HTTP::Methods::Patch::LogRequest to log raw HTTP request headers being sent to servers.

Use LWP::UserAgent::Patch::LogResponse to log HTTP responses.

Log::Any::For::LWP bundles all three mentioned patches in a single convenient package.
