      I have WWW::Search installed but not WWW::SearchResult I am on activeperl 5.8.6 which repository has it?
        What does the debugger show after you call new? Are you calling new with Yahoo, or with another search engine? If it's another engine, do you have the specific WWW::Search backend for that engine installed?

    When you say "x my $oResult" it means to create a NEW variable, local to just that one debugging command, and display its value, which is of course undefined. If you just say "x $oResult" it will display the correct value.
    Incidentally, I just ran your program under perl 5.8.8 on a Linux box, installing WWW::Search::AltaVista (and Yahoo as well) from CPAN. It works fine for me. You might have run into a Windows (or ActivePerl) compatibility issue. Sometimes it helps to use the version of Perl that runs under Cygwin .
