5300$PATCH_HTTP_KEEPALIVE documented incorrectly
- Mar 27, 2006The $PATCH_HTTP_KEEPALIVE constant is documented as being off by
default -- but at line 396 in SOAP/Lite.pm the value is set to 1.
This is bad because it breaks LWP's default behavior concerning when
and when not to redirect a request. In a simple single run program,
this may not be a much of a problem, but under mod_perl it changes the
expected behavior for other programs since the change persists.
Please, change the default value of the constant, or update the docs,
or change the patch to respect the settings of 'max_redirect' and
'requests_redirectable' in LWP::UserAgent.
