LWP::Simple::Post - Single-method POST requests
Really simple wrapper to HTTP POST requests
use LWP::Simple::Post qw(post post_xml); my $response = post('http://production/receiver', 'some text');
DON'T USE THIS MODULE! There are very few situations in which this module would be a win over using LWP::UserAgent directly. It was a bad idea I implemented a long time ago.
This module is intended to do for HTTP POST requests what LWP::Simple did for GET requests. If you want to do anything complicated, this module is not for you. If you just want to push data at a URL with the minimum of fuss, you're the target audience.
my $content = post( string $url, string $data );
Posts the data in
$data to the URL in
$url, and returns what we got back. Returns
undef on failure.
my $content = post_xml( string $url, string $data );
Having written this module, it turned out that 99% of what I needed it for required a content-type of
text/xml. This does exactly what
post does, only the content-type header is set to
