Padre::Task::LWP

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(
      request => HTTP::Request−>new(
          GET => '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.
