IO::All::Gopher - Extends IO::All to Gopher URLs
use IO::All; io('gopher://example.org/pub/xyz') > io('xyz'); # GET to file
This module extends IO::All for dealing with Gopher URLs. Note that you don't need to use it explicitly, as it is autoloaded by IO::All whenever it sees something that looks like a Gopher URL.
This is a subclass of IO::All::LWP. The only new method is
gopher, which can be used to create a blank IO::All::Gopher object; or it can also take an Gopher URL as a parameter. Note that in most cases it is simpler just to call io('gopher://example.com'), which calls the
gopher method automatically.
Read-only operators from IO::All may be used. < GETs a Gopher URL.
