Name        : perl-HTTP-Lite
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 2.4
Release     : 1.fc17
URL         : http://search.cpan.org/dist/HTTP-Lite/
Summary     : Lightweight HTTP implementation
Description :
HTTP::Lite is a stand-alone lightweight HTTP/1.1 implementation for perl. It is
not intended as a replacement for the fully-features LWP module. Instead, it is
intended for use in situations where it is desirable to install the minimal
number of modules to achieve HTTP support, or where LWP is not a good candidate
due to CPU overhead, such as slower processors. HTTP::Lite is also
significantly faster than LWP.
