say HTTP::Thin->new()->request(GET 'http://example.com')->as_string;
DESCRIPTIONWARNING: This module is untested beyond the very basics. The implementation is simple enough that it shouldn't do evil things but, yeah it's still not approved for use by small children.
"HTTP::Thin" is a thin wrapper around HTTP::Tiny adding the ability to pass in HTTP::Request objects and get back HTTP::Response objects. The maintainers of HTTP::Tiny, justifiably, don't want to have to maintain compatibility but many other projects already consume the HTTP::Message objects. This is just glue code doing what it does best.
requestIn addition to the parameters documented in HTTP::Tiny, "HTTP::Thin" takes HTTP::Request objects as well.
The return value is an HTTP::Response object.
WHY?A conversation on IRC lead to "mst", "ether", and I agreeing that this would be a useful module but probably not worth the effort. I wrote it anyway to get it out of my head.
