HTTP::Async::Polite - politely process multiple HTTP requests
See HTTP::Async - the usage is unchanged.
This HTTP::Async module allows you to have many requests going on at once. This can be very rude if you are fetching several pages from the same domain. This module add limits to the number of simultaneous requests to a given domain and adds an interval between the requests. In all other ways it is identical in use to the original HTTP::Async.
send_interval Getter and setter for the "send_interval" - the time in seconds to leave between each request for a given domain. By default this is set to 5 seconds.
These methods are overloaded but otherwise work exactly as the original methods did. The docs here just describe what they do differently. new Sets the "send_interval" value to the default of 5 seconds. add_with_opts Adds the request to the correct queue depending on the domain. to_send_count Returns the number of requests waiting to be sent. This is the number in the actual queue plus the number in each domain specific queue.
HTTP::Async - the module that this one is based on.
