While looking through the tutorial on ElementSOAP at the following
link:

http://effbot.org/zone/element-soap.htm

I observed sample code that included:

from HTTPClient import HTTPClient

When I get into Pythonwin and attempt the import statement above:

>>> from HTTPClient import HTTPClient
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<interactive input>", line 1, in ?
ImportError: No module named HTTPClient

In addition:
1) a case-insensitive search for any files with 'HTTPClient' where the
search begins in the c:\python24\ and includes all sub-folders results
in a: "Search is complete. There are not results to dsiplay." message
2) a search of this Google group for HTTPClient didn't result in any
links that appeared to point me to where I could find a package that
includes HTTPClient
3) a search in the python.org home page for HTTPClient didn't result in
any links that appeared to point me to where I could find a package
that includes HTTPClient

I noticed that there is a file httplib.py in which the docstring begins
"HTTP/1.1 client library", but I couldn't figure out whether what was
in httplib.py replaced HTTPClient.py, and if so, how.

So, my questions are:
1) is there a package available which, when installed, will allow the

from HTTPClient import HTTPClient

statement to execute without ImportError?

2) how should I have constructed my searches when attempting to resolve
this issue such that I wouldn't have had to post this question?

Thank you.
