    [Cross-posting to news:comp.infosystems.www.misc as the module

    Somehow, I've managed to do it exactly the other way around.
    Apologies for the noise.

    On the other hand, news:comp.misc seems too general for this library, although I intend to announce No-HTTPS there once available.]

    [Unquoting the rest of the original message below.]

    As part of the forthcoming No-HTTPS plain-HTTP to HTTPS transparent
    proxy release, I've posted the HTTP1::MessageStream Perl module
    to the news:alt.sources newsgroup [1] (also in References:.)

    [1] news:878t3oupx3.fsf@siamics.net

    An excerpt from the README follows.

    The HTTP1::MessageStream module intends to implement a generic
    push-mode lazy HTTP/1.1 (RFC 7230) and HTTP/1.0 message parser.

    The parser is "lazy." That is, new data will be read from the
    internal buffer only as necessary to perform the respective
    state variable (such as: start line, header, and body) query.

    The interface is designed to allow the caller to retrieve HTTP/1
    message parts (start line, header and body) identical (octet-wise)
    to those being supplied to it; the only situation where this
    ability is not currently provided is when the chunked coding is
    unwrapped to obtain the payload. This may get addressed in a
    future release.

    Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or (at
