NAME

       HTTP::Response::Encoding - Adds encoding() to HTTP::Response

VERSION

       $Id: Encoding.pm,v 0.6 2009/07/28 21:25:25 dankogai Exp dankogai $

SYNOPSIS

         use LWP::UserAgent;
         use HTTP::Response::Encoding;

         my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new();
         my $res = $ua->get("http://www.example.com/");
         warn $res->encoding;

EXPORT

       Nothing.

METHODS

       This module adds the following methods to  HTTP::Response objects.

       "$res->charset"
         Tells the charset exactly as appears in the "Content-Type:" header.  Note that the
         presence of the charset does not guarantee if the response content is decodable via
         Encode.

         To normalize this, you should try

           $res->encoder->mime_name; # with Encode 2.21 or above

         or

           use I18N::Charset;
           # ...
           mime_charset_name($res->encoding);

       "$res->encoder"
         Returns the corresponding encoder object or undef if it can't.

       "$res->encoding"
         Tells the content encoding in the canonical name in Encode.  Returns undef if it can't.

         For most cases, you are more likely to successfully find encoding after GET than HEAD.
         HTTP::Response is smart enough to parse

           <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=whatever"/>

         But you need the content to let HTTP::Response parse it.  If you don't want to retrieve
         the whole content but interested in its encoding, try something like below;

           my $req =  HTTP::Request->new(GET => $uri);
           $req->headers->header(Range => "bytes=0-4095"); # just 1st 4k
           my $res = $ua->request($req);
           warn $res->encoding;

       "$res->decoded_content"
         Discontinued since HTTP::Message already has this method.

         See HTTP::Message for details.
