Subject: Don't included Content-Type header if request doesn't have content
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 438b
LWP by default adds this header to all requests even if there is no content in the request: Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded Users also can't disable it by passing in the header keypair: content_type => undef . They can probably do so by manually constructing an HTTP::Request, but I haven't checked that. I did verify that neither Firefox nor Chrome include a Content-Type header if there is no content in the request.
