lib::http - Using virtually a Perl library from the Internet with the HTTP protocol.
Message ID:
Felow PM Authors,

Recently I was developing a new module, called lib::http, where is possible
to use a Perl library installed in other server over the internet. Also with
this release is distributed a modified Perl interpreter, actually a modified
TinyPerl, that doesn't have any lib, but with it is possible to use a full
perl installation over the internet.

The main idea is to use Perl without need to install anything, and to have a
central point to load modules, where is possible to update a full grid of
servers changing only a single place. So, we can update all the services
writed in Perl that works in our grid changing a single Perl installation,
what is much more faster, and as a plus we can hide some modules, since we
can tell to load this modules only in the memory, without need to store them
fisically in the server.

lib::http was created only in the last week and still need tests, of course,
but it's working very well, and already have support for gzip compression,
index of a perl library in the server side, and works in any simple HTTP

You can find it at:

Enjoy! ;-P
