perl-http-lite 2.44

Lightweight HTTP implementation

HTTP::Lite is a stand-alone lightweight HTTP/1.1 implementation for perl. It is intended for use in situations where it is desirable to install the minimal number of modules to achieve HTTP support. HTTP::Lite is ideal for CGI (or mod_perl) programs or for bundling for redistribution with larger packages where only HTTP GET and POST functionality are necessary. HTTP::Lite is compliant with the Host header, necessary for name based virtual hosting, and supports proxies. Additionally, HTTP::Lite supports a callback to allow processing of request data as it arrives.


Install perl-http-lite 2.44 as follows:

guix install perl-http-lite@2.44

Or install the latest version:

guix install perl-http-lite

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
