Alien::Build::Plugin::Fetch - Fetch Alien::Build plugins

version 2.73

use alienfile;
share {
  start_url 'http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/make';
  plugin 'Download';
};

Fetch plugins retrieve single resources from the internet. The difference between a Fetch plugin and a Download plugin is that Download plugin may fetch several resources from the internet (usually using a Fetch plugin), before finding the final archive. Normally you will not need to use Fetch plugins directly but should instead use the Alien::Build::Plugin::Download::Negotiate plugin, which will pick the best plugins for your given URL.

Fetch using the "curl" command.
Fetch using HTTP::Tiny.
Fetch using LWP::UserAgent.
Fetch from a local file. This is typically used to bundle packages with your Alien.
Fetch from a local directory. This is typically used to bundle packages with your Alien.
Fetch using Net::FTP. Use of FTP should be discouraged as of this writing (August 2022).
Fetch using "wget".
