LWP::Online will try to verify, as accurately as it can, if the host has any Internet access: it will check if there is basic network access, DNS connectivity and it will also check whether one from a whole set of transport (HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, and so on) is actually available. The exported 'online' function can also be used by other modules to skip the tests which require Internet connectivity.
