DESCRIPTION ^ is a shell for making XMLRPC calls. It takes one parameter, endpoint (actually it will tell you about it if you try to run it). Additional commands can follow.

After that you'll be able to run any methods of XMLRPC::Lite, like autotype, readable, etc. You can run it the same way as you do it in your Perl script. You'll see output from method, result of XMLRPC call, detailed info on XMLRPC faulure or transport error.

For full list of available methods see documentation for XMLRPC::Lite.

Along with methods of XMLRPC::Lite you'll be able (and that's much more interesting) run any XMLRPC methods you know about on remote server and see processed results. You can even switch on debugging (with call something like: on_debug(sub{print@_})) and see XMLRPC code with headers sent and received.
