Hi All,

I am trying to convert a p5 program to p6.  What do I use in
place of `LWP::UserAgent`?

I use it for downloading files from the web.  I need to be able
to pass the following to the web page:


This is the p5 code I want to convert:


Any words of wisdom?

Many thanks,

LWP::Simple now allows you to set the header of your request.
See my recent article with examples:
I hope this helps.

I see your article.  I do believe this is what I want.
   "args": {
     "language": "Perl",
     "math": "19+23=42",
     "name": "Larry Wall"
   "headers": {
     "Connection": "close",
     "Host": "httpbin.org",
     "User-Agent": "LWP::Simple/0.090 Perl6/rakudo"
   "origin": "",
   "url": "http://httpbin.org/get?name=Larry


1) may I leave off the `args` and only include the `headers`?

2) I need an example with headers.  I have no clue what goes
    before the first "{"

Many thanks,

I think you quoted the response here and not the request.
What you need I think is the last example on that page.
Something like this:

my $html = LWP::Simple.new.get("http://httpbin.org/headers";, {
     "User-Agent" => "Perl 6 Maven articles",
     "Zone" => "q" }


Thank you!

how do I save to a file?

And how do I get it to follow links, like `curl -L`?

I was just on the perl (5) chat line. One of the developers
uncovered the issue I was having following link in P5's
LWP::UserAgent.   The default is 7 redirects. I cough on
two because tcp dump truncates the return string (it is long).

They said they would look at it and see if they could fix it
and then eMail me.

Man I try across a lot of bugs!  <tears>
