NAME

HTTP::Lint::UserAgent - HTTP User agent that warns for suspicious transactions

SYNOPSIS

  # Do not overload LWP::UserAgent::request;
  use HTTP::Lint::UserAgent qw/:noinject/;
  new HTTP::Lint::UserAgent->request ($request);

  # Do overload LWP::UserAgent::request;
  use HTTP::Lint::UserAgent;
  use LWP::UserAgent;
  new LWP::UserAgent->request ($request);

  # Overload LWP::UserAgent::request without script modification;
  perl -MHTTP::Lint::UserAgent client.pl

DESCRIPTION

HTTP::Lint::UserAgent subclasses LWP::UserAgent, providing request method that checks each transaction and messages involved when it finishes with HTTP::Lint and produces warning on console (with warn).

Unless loaded with :noinject, it replaces the request method in LWP::UserAgent package, transparently intercepting all requests.

BUGS

It's hackish, use it only for debugging and avoid using it in production code!

Not much can go wrong, but it's just not nice.
