  $req->parse("Content-Length: 12\x0a\x0d\x0a\x0d");

  $req->url->parse('http://127.0.0.1/foo/bar');
  $req->method('GET');
  say $req->to_string;

DESCRIPTION ^

Mojo::Message::Request is a container for HTTP requests as described in RFC 2616 and RFC 2817.

EVENTS ^

Mojo::Message::Request inherits all events from Mojo::Message.

ATTRIBUTES ^

Mojo::Message::Request inherits all attributes from Mojo::Message and implements the following new ones.

env

  my $env = $req->env;
  $req    = $req->env({});

Direct access to the CGI or PSGI environment hash if available.

  # Check CGI version
  my $version = $req->env->{GATEWAY_INTERFACE};

  # Check PSGI version
  my $version = $req->env->{'psgi.version'};

method

  my $method = $req->method;
  $req       = $req->method('POST');

HTTP request method, defaults to GET.

url

  my $url = $req->url;
  $req    = $req->url(Mojo::URL->new);

HTTP request URL, defaults to a Mojo::URL object.

  # Get request information
  say $req->url->to_abs->userinfo;
  say $req->url->to_abs->host;
  say $req->url->to_abs->path;

METHODS ^

Mojo::Message::Request inherits all methods from Mojo::Message and implements the following new ones.

clone

  my $clone = $req->clone;

Clone request if possible, otherwise return undef.

cookies

  my $cookies = $req->cookies;
  $req        = $req->cookies(Mojo::Cookie::Request->new);
  $req        = $req->cookies({name => 'foo', value => 'bar'});

Access request cookies, usually Mojo::Cookie::Request objects.

extract_start_line

  my $success = $req->extract_start_line(\$str);

Extract request line from string.

fix_headers

  $req = $req->fix_headers;

Make sure request has all required headers.

get_start_line_chunk

  my $bytes = $req->get_start_line_chunk($offset);

Get a chunk of request line data starting from a specific position.

is_secure

  my $success = $req->is_secure;

Check if connection is secure.

is_xhr

  my $success = $req->is_xhr;

Check X-Requested-With header for XMLHttpRequest value.

param

  my @names = $req->param;
  my $foo   = $req->param('foo');
  my @foo   = $req->param('foo');

Access GET and POST parameters. Note that this method caches all data, so it should not be called before the entire request body has been received. Parts of the request body need to be loaded into memory to parse POST parameters, so you have to make sure it is not excessively large.

params

  my $params = $req->params;

All GET and POST parameters, usually a Mojo::Parameters object. Note that this method caches all data, so it should not be called before the entire request body has been received. Parts of the request body need to be loaded into memory to parse POST parameters, so you have to make sure it is not excessively large.

  # Get parameter value
  say $req->params->param('foo');

parse

  $req = $req->parse('GET /foo/bar HTTP/1.1');
  $req = $req->parse(REQUEST_METHOD => 'GET');
  $req = $req->parse({REQUEST_METHOD => 'GET'});

Parse HTTP request chunks or environment hash.

proxy

  my $proxy = $req->proxy;
  $req      = $req->proxy('http://foo:bar@127.0.0.1:3000');
  $req      = $req->proxy(Mojo::URL->new('http://127.0.0.1:3000'));

Proxy URL for request.

  # Disable proxy
  $req->proxy(0);

query_params

  my $params = $req->query_params;

All GET parameters, usually a Mojo::Parameters object.

  # Turn GET parameters to hash and extract value
  say $req->query_params->to_hash->{foo};
