Idiom #101 Load from HTTP GET request into a string

Make an HTTP request with method GET to the URL u, then store the body of the response in the string s.

(def s (slurp u))
using System.Net.Http;
var client = new HttpClient();
s = await client.GetStringAsync(u);

import std.conv;
string s = u.get.to!string;
import "io"
import "net/http"
res, err := http.Get(u)
if err != nil {
	return err
buffer, err := io.ReadAll(res.Body)
if err != nil {
	return err
s := string(buffer)
String s = u.text
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.js"></script>
$.get(u, function(data){
  s = data;
  .then(res => res.text())
  .then(text => s = text)
var xmlHttp = new XMLHttpRequest();
xmlHttp.onreadystatechange = function() { 
	if (xmlHttp.readyState == 4 && xmlHttp.status == 200)
		s = xmlHttp.responseText;
xmlHttp.open("GET", u, true);
const res = await fetch(u)
s = await res.text()
