    my $io = $body->open( 'r', { binmode => 'utf-8' } ) || die( $body->error );
    $io->read( $buffer, 2048 );

    # open the body as an utf-8 stream and print it to filehandle $filehandle
    $body->print( $filehandle, { binmode => 'utf-8' } );

=head1 VERSION



This class represents an entity body as a scalar.

This class inherits from L<HTTP::Promise::Body> and L<Module::Generic::Scalar>

=head1 METHODS

Methods superseded by this class are as follow.

=head2 as_string

This returns a new L<scalar object|Module::Generic::Scalar> containing the body data.

=head2 checksum_md5

Returns a md6 checksum of the body data using L<Crypt::Digest::MD5>.

=for Pod::Coverage error

=for Pod::Coverage pass_error

=head2 path

This returns nothing since there is no filepath for an all-memory body data

=head2 purge

This calls L<Module::Generic::Scalar/reset> to empty the underlying body data.
