PHP HTTP protocol client is a PHP class for making HTTP requests. It can establish connections via SOCKS or proxy servers and establish secure connections (HTTPS) with optional SSL client certificates. It supports HTTP Basic, HTTP Digest, and NTLM (Windows or Samba) authentication mechanisms. It submits POST requests with user-defined form values, file uploading, or with user-defined request bodies. It handles cookies and automatic redirection handling. There is an addon class that logs in to Yahoo! and executes actions on behalf of the user, like exporting the address book or sending invitations to Yahoo! groups.
