Python replacement for PHP's curl_exec [ edit | history ]
import httplib
h = 'www.example.com'
f = httplib.HTTPConnection(h)
f.request("GET",'/')
f.getresponse().read()


Alternative using pycurl:

import pycurl
import StringIO
b = StringIO.StringIO()
c = pycurl.Curl()
c.setopt(pycurl.URL, 'www.example.com')
c.setopt(pycurl.WRITEFUNCTION, b.write)
c.perform()
response = b.getvalue()
c.close()
