( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
There are two issues here:
  • changing the http-version: The only way to do this that I have found is to set an Environment Variable
  • url-encoding: Just set the content with the content method provided by HTTP::Request

Here is a small example that should do what you wanted:
use strict; sub BEGIN { # force HTTP version to 1.0 $ENV{PERL_LWP_USE_HTTP_10} = "1"; } use LWP::UserAgent; use HTTP::Request::Common qw(POST); my $ua = new LWP::UserAgent (); my $req = POST 'http://localhost:4443/test.pl'; $req->content("<user>john\@doe</user>"); print $req->as_string; my $response = $ua->request($req); print $response->as_string;
Update:Please be careful when using the "trick" with the Environmant Vaiable, as I have seen it in the code not in any documentation. So I believe that this is an inofficial feature, which could disappear with a new version of LWP.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
