As mentioned, LWP is probably much better than what you're trying.. If you want to experiment, you might look at the LWP::UserAgent module.. it is cool because it has great options and you can politely identify yourself. However I found the documentation a bit abstruse.. so below is a quick example that might help..

use LWP; my $finaldata; my $query_url = ''; sub get_pagesum { + my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new( agent => ''); + my $response = $ua->get("$query_url", + ':content_cb' => \&gen64, + ); + } + + sub gen64 { + my($data, $response, $protocol) = @_; + return $finaldata .= $data; + } # whatever you got off the last request # should now be contained in $finaldata
(In my case I was sending $finaldata off to be md5 checksummed.)

Of course, if your file contains a list of URLs you must fetch, then you'll be carrying out the procedure for each line in the file...

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
