Subject: Support CONNECT method for proxying
please add support for the CONNECT method. LWP::Protocol::http does have support for this as displayed in this snippet: if (defined $proxy) { # $proxy is an URL to an HTTP server which will proxy this request $host = $proxy->host; $port = $proxy->port; $fullpath = $method eq "CONNECT" ? ($url->host . ":" . $url->port) : $url->as_string; } basically, it's just using host:port instead of the entire url, like so: CONNECT 1.2.3.4:8080 HTTP/1.0 and then stashes the socket so data can be sent directly to it
Work on this has begun at https://github.com/mnunberg/poe-component-client-http/ Considering keep-alive issues, this is significantly harder than you've described. You can follow development at the above github URL, or by joining us in irc.perl.org #poe. Thanks!
Work on this seems to have stopped, sorry.
