Subject : HTTP::Headers not working if header has “:” in it comes as Illegal field name . Sample code that will not work my $list_request = HTTP::Request->new( POST => $list_request_api ); $list_request->content_type('application/json'); $list_request->header( "Authorization:Bearer" => $final->{access_token}, "Accept" => "application/json" ); $list_request->content($security_list); eval { $list_results = $List_agent->request($list_request) }; $@ and warn "Exception when requesting data : $@\n"; Module code that causes this . Headers.pm Carp::croak("Illegal field name '$field'") if rindex($field, ':') > 1 || !length($field); Thanks Avnit Bambah

Message body is not shown because sender requested not to inline it.

Well, it is an illegal field name.  Since ":" is used to separate the field name from the value and there is not escape mechanism to actually have an literal ":" in the name itself.  What's you context for wanting this?

My header has ":" and I want to use it like this to get authorization . $list_request->header( "Authorization:Bearer" => $final->{access_token}, "Accept" => "application/json" ); $list_request->content($security_list); I totally agree with your logic . Is there a way I can pass it ? Thanks Avnit Show quoted text

I think what you actually want is:

  $list_request->header( "Authorization" => "Bearer $final->{access_token}")

I don't know what the "Bearer" scheme is, but that's how you do Basic auth, so I guess it follows the same pattern.

See http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2617#section-2

I'd go back to whoever defined that 'Authorization:Bearer' header and thump them on the head with a paper copy of RFC 2616. :p
