( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
www.securities.stanford.edu and securities.stanford.edu share a top level domain, but would be different computers. Try again with
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use WWW::Mechanize ; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new(); foreach my $line (100982..106146) { next if 0.99 > rand ; print "Now processing $line \n" ; my $get_file = "http://securities.stanford.edu/filings-case.html?i +d=".$line; my $filename = "file_".$line ; open OUT, ">$filename" or die $!; print "file $filename \n"; $mech->get($get_file) ;

As a side note, as long as you are using double quotes, your code will probably read better if you interpolate your variables, a la:

my $get_file = "http://securities.stanford.edu/filings-case.html?id=$l +ine";

You might also consider using a three-argument open and indirect filehandle, particularly since you don't seem to be closing OUT prior to opening the next file.

Also, if you are trawling everything off someone's server, it's considered polite to put a sleep in there. And you should check that you aren't violating terms of service.


#11929 First ask yourself `How would I do this without a computer?' Then have the computer do it the same way.

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
