NAME ^

Padre::Task::LWP - Generic HTTP client background processing task

SYNOPSIS ^

  # Fire and forget HTTP request
  Padre::Task::LWP->new(
      request => HTTP::Request->new(
          GET => 'http://perlide.org',
      ),
  )->schedule;

DESCRIPTION ^

Sending and receiving data via HTTP.

METHODS ^

new

  my $task = Padre::Task::LWP->new(
      method => 'GET',
      url    => 'http://perlide.org',
  );

The new constructor creates a Padre::Task for a background HTTP request.

It takes a single addition parameter request which is a fully-prepared HTTP::Request object for the request.

Returns a new Padre::Task::LWP object, or throws an exception on error.

request

The request method returns the HTTP::Request object that was provided to the constructor.

response

Before the run method has been fired the response method returns undef.

After the run method has been fired the response method returns the HTTP::Response object for the LWP::UserAgent request.

Typically, you would use this in the finish method for the task, if you wish to take any further actions in Padre based on the result of the HTTP call.

SEE ALSO ^

This class inherits from Padre::Task and its instances can be scheduled using Padre::TaskManager.

The transfer of the objects to and from the worker threads is implemented with Storable.
