> "request" Python module

Not sure what you want.

But after searching for "request" Python module, I'd say it's LWP.

    ... or HTTP::Tiny, which has been in core since 5.13.9. Of course, if you are using one of those *nix systems where the downstream packagers know better than p5p what ought to be in core, you may still not have it.

      Wow, thanks for mentioning that! I had never noticed it was in the core.

    I agree.

    Although the TIMTOWTDI principle applies here as in almost everything regarding Perl, I'd say most of the times you want to interact with the Web in Perl, you'd go with LWP.
