in reply to lib::http - Using virtually a Perl library from the Internet with the HTTP protocol.

It looks quite interesting, and certainly useful for an intranet or similar.

May I suggest though, that you spell check the documents, and/or get someone else to read them? (Maybe you were having a bad spelling day, since I don't recall your other docs being quite so bad :)

Ther's no mention of speed any where, I assume it depends on the network, but it would still be interesting to see some numbers, for a local lan, for example. (I can see it being most useful with mod_perl or persistent perl, where load-once is the norm).

    I did some work to cache all that is possible. What we can't forget is that the files are downloaded compressed, and are not downloaded more than 1 time, unless when they are modified. Basically if you have a normal Perl installed, you actually did the same job, transfer the compressed installation to the machine, what we do with lib::http is to load in steps, and only load what is needed, when is needed.

      That doesn't answer my question whatsoever. I was looking for numbers, not reasoning.
