in reply to Grabbing a Web Page

Here you go; this will save the contents of the page to $page.
use LWP::Simple; my $page = get '';
If you want to write it directly to a file (it doesn't sound like you want to do this, but perhaps...), you can use the getstore routine.
use LWP::Simple; getstore('', 'foo.html');

    The Perl Cookbook by Tom Christiansen and Nathan Torkington has a 5-page write-up on "Fetching a URL from a Perl Script" using the "Use LWP::Simple; $content = get ($URL);" syntax you discuss.

    This O'Reilly book might be worth a look if you have it around. I have always gotten the impression that author Tom Christiansen along with Randal Schwartz and Larry Wall are the trinity of holy Perl worship and are each worthy of reverence from humble initiates.
