DESCRIPTION
===========

HTTP::Tinyish is a Raku port of [https://github.com/miyagawa/HTTP-Tinyish](https://github.com/miyagawa/HTTP-Tinyish). Currently only support curl.

Str VS Buf
----------

Raku distinguishes Str from Buf. HTTP::Tinyish handles data as Str by default (that is, encode/decode utf-8 if needed by default). If you want to handle data as Buf, please follow the instruction below.

If you want to send Buf content, just specify Buf in content:

```raku
my $binary-data = "file.bin".IO.slurp(:bin);
$http.post:
  "http://example.com/post",
  content => $binary-data,
;
```

If you want to recieve http content as Buf, then call request/get/post/... method with `bin => True `:

```raku
my %res = $http.get("http://example.com/image.png", bin => True);
does-ok %res<content>, Buf; # pass
```

And decode `%res<content> ` by yourself if you want.
