Update to 5.803:
2004-12-11 Gisle Aas
HTTP::Message: $mess->decoded_content sometimes had the side
effect of destroying $mess->content.
HTTP::Message: $mess->decoded_content failed for
"Content-Encoding: deflate" if the content was not in the
zlib-format as specified for the HTTP protocol. Microsoft got
this wrong, so we have to support raw deflate bytes as well.
HTTP::Response->parse don't require the protocol to be
specified any more. This allows HTTP::Response->parse($resp->as_string)
to round-trip. Patch by Harald Joerg.
HTTP::Response: $resp->base might now return undef. Previously
it would croak if there was no associated request. Based on
patch by Harald Joerg.
HTML::Form now support <label> for check- and radio boxes.
Patch contributed by Dan Kubb.
Make HTTP::Daemon subclassable, patch by Kees Cook.
lwp-download allow directory to save into to be specified.
Patch by Radoslaw Zielinski
lwp-download will validate filename derived from server
controlled data and will fail if something looks not
2004-11-30 Gisle Aas
The HTTP::Message object now have a decoded_content() method.
This will return the content after any Content-Encodings and
charsets has been decoded.
Compress::Zlib is now a prerequisite module.
HTTP::Request::Common: The POST() function created an invalid
Content-Type header for file uploads with no parameters.
Net::HTTP: Allow Transfer-Encoding with trailing whitespace.
Net::HTTP: Don't allow empty content to be treated as a valid
File::Protocol::file: Fixup directory links in HTML generated
for directories. Patch by Moshe Kaminsky
Makefile.PL will try to discover misconfigured systems that
can't talk to themselves and disable tests that depend on this.
Makefile.PL will now default to 'n' when asking about whether
to install the "GET", "HEAD", "POST" programs. There has been
too many name clashes with these common names.

HTTP::Message improved content/content_ref interaction. Fixes
DYNAMIC_FILE_UPLOAD and other uses of code content in requests.
- Handle clicking on nameless image.
- Don't let $form->click invoke a disabled submit button.
HTTP::Cookies could not handle a "old-style" cookie named
HTTP::Headers work-around for thread safety issue in perl <= 5.8.4.
HTTP::Request::Common improved documentation.
LWP::Protocol: Check that we can write to the file specified in
$ua->request(..., $file) or $ua->mirror.
LWP::UserAgent clone() dies if proxy was not set. Patch by
HTTP::Methods now avoid "use of uninitialized"-warning when server
replies with incomplete status line.
lwp-download will now actually tell you why it aborts if it runs
out of disk space of fails to write some other way.
WWW::RobotRules: only display warning when running under 'perl -w'
and show which robots.txt file they correspond to. Based on
patch by Bill Moseley.
WWW::RobotRules: Don't empty cache when agent() is called if the
agent name does not change. Patch by Ville Skyttä
2004-06-16 Gisle Aas
HTML::Form will allow individual menu entries to be disabled.
This was needed to support <input type=radio disabled value=foo>
and <select><option disabled>foo.
HTML::Form now avoids name clashes between the <select> and
HTML::Form now implicitly close <select> elements when it sees
another input or </form>. This is closer to the MSIE behaviour.
HTML::Form will now "support" keygen-inputs. It will not
calculate a key by itself. The user will have to set its
value for it to be returned by the form.
HTTP::Headers now special case field names that start with a
':'. This is used as an escape mechanism when you need the
header names to not go through canonicalization. It means
that you can force LWP to use a specific casing and even
underscores in header names. The ugly $TRANSLATE_UNDERSCORE
global has been undocumented as a result of this.
HTTP::Message will now allow an external 'content_ref'
to be set. This can for instance be used to let HTTP::Request
objects pick up content data from some scalar variable without
having to copy it.
HTTP::Request::Common. The individual parts will no longer
have a Content-Length header for file uploads. This improves
compatibility with "normal" browsers.
LWP::Simple doc patch for getprint.
Contributed by Yitzchak Scott-Thoennes
LWP::UserAgent: New methods default_header() and
default_headers(). These can be used to set up headers that
are automatically added to requests as they are sent. This
can for instance be used to initialize various Accept headers.
Various typo fixes by Ville Skyttä
Fixed test failure under perl-5.005.
LWP::Protocol::loopback: This is a new protocol handler that
works like the HTTP TRACE method, it will return the request
provided to it. This is sometimes useful for testing. It can
for instance be invoked by setting the 'http_proxy' environment
variable to 'loopback:'.
2004-04-13 Gisle Aas
HTML::Form now exposes the 'readonly' and 'disabled'
attribute for inputs. This allows your program to simulate
RFC 2616 says that http: referer should not be sent with
https: requests. The lwp-rget program, the $req->referer method
and the redirect handling code now try to enforce this.
Patch by Ville Skyttä
WWW::RobotRules now look for the string found in
robots.txt as a case insensitive substring from its own
User-Agent string, not the other way around.
Patch by Ville Skyttä
HTTP::Headers: New method 'header_field_names' that
return a list of names as suggested by its name.
HTTP::Headers: $h->remove_content_headers will now
also remove the headers "Allow", "Expires" and
"Last-Modified". These are also part of the set
that RFC 2616 denote as Entity Header Fields.
HTTP::Headers: $h->content_type is now more careful
in removing embedded space in the returned value.
It also now returns all the parameters as the second
return value as documented.
HTTP::Headers: $h->header() now croaks. It used to
silently do nothing.
HTTP::Headers: Documentation tweaks. Documented a
few bugs discovered during testing.
Typo fixes to the documentation all over the place
by Ville Skyttä
2004-04-07 Gisle Aas
Removed stray Data::Dump reference from test suite.
Added the parse(), clear(), parts() and add_part() methods to
HTTP::Message. The HTTP::MessageParts module of 5.77 is no more.
Added clear() and remove_content_headers() methods to
The as_string() method of HTTP::Message now appends a newline
if called without arguments and the non-empty content does
not end with a newline. This ensures better compatibility with
5.76 and older versions of libwww-perl.
Use case insensitive lookup of hostname in $ua->credentials.
Patch by Andrew Pimlott
2004-04-06 Gisle Aas
LWP::Simple did not handle redirects properly when the "Location"
header used uncommon letter casing.
Patch by Ward Vandewege
LWP::UserAgent passed the wrong request to redirect_ok().
Patch by Ville Skyttä
LWP did not handle URLs like http://www.example.com?foo=bar
LWP::RobotUA construct now accept key/value arguments in the
same way as LWP::UserAgent.
Based on patch by Andy Lester
LWP::RobotUA did not parse robots.txt files that contained
"Disallow:" using uncommon letter casing.
Patch by Liam Quinn
WWW::RobotRules now allow leading space when parsing robots.txt
file as suggested by Craig Macdonald
We now also allow space before the colon.
WWW::RobotRules did not handle User-Agent names that use complex
version numbers. Patch by Liam Quinn
Case insensitive handling of hosts and domain names
The bundled media.types file now match video/quicktime
with the .mov extension, as suggested by Michel Koppelaar
Experimental support for composite messages, currently
implemented by the HTTP::MessageParts module. Based on
ideas from Joshua Hoblitt
Fixed libscan in Makefile.PL.
Patch by Andy Lester
The HTTP::Message constructor now accept a plain array reference
as its $headers argument.
The return value of the HTTP::Message as_string() method now
better conforms to the HTTP wire layout. No additional "\n"
are appended to the as_string value for HTTP::Request and
HTTP::Response. The HTTP::Request as_string now replace missing
method or URI with "-" instead of "[NO METHOD]" and "[NO URI]".
We don't want values with spaces in them, because it makes it
harder to parse.
