       lwp-dump	- See what headers and content is returned for a URL

       lwp-dump	[ options ] URL

       The lwp-dump program will get the resource identified by	the URL	and
       then dump the response object to	STDOUT.	 This will display the headers
       returned	and the	initial	part of	the content, escaped so	that it's safe
       to display even binary content.	The escapes syntax used	is the same as
       for Perl's double quoted	strings.  If there is no content the string
       "(no content)" is shown in its place.

       The following options are recognized:

       --agent string
	   Override the	user agent string passed to the	server.

	   LWP internally generate various "Client-*" headers that are
	   stripped by lwp-dump	in order to show the headers exactly as	the
	   server provided them.  This option will suppress this.

       --max-length n
	   How much of the content to show.  The default is 512.  Set this to
	   0 for unlimited.

	   If the content is longer then the string is chopped at the limit
	   and the string "...\n(### more bytes	not shown)" appended.

       --method	string
	   Use the given method	for the	request	instead	of the default "GET".

	   By default lwp-dump will not	try to initialize headers by looking
	   at the head section of HTML documents.  This	option enables this.
	   This	corresponds to "parse_head" in LWP::UserAgent.

	   Also	dump the request sent.

       lwp-request, LWP, "dump"	in HTTP::Message
