26 The libwww-perl collection is a set of Perl modules which provides a
27 simple and consistent application programming interface (API) to the
28 World-Wide Web. The main focus of the library is to provide classes and
29 functions that allow you to write WWW clients. The library also contains
30 modules that are of more general use and even classes that help you
31 implement simple HTTP servers.
