definitely fun, especially after spending all afternoon installing various modules prerequisite to LWP (smiley)

i modified this program so you can say: instead of
and it reads the url from the command line and just prints the page to stdout
just in case anyone cared
#!/usr/bin/perl use Socket; use strict; #i don't know what $line is my $line; #but i left it in anyway my $trailingslash; my $URL = $ARGV[0]; #get URL from command line $URL =~ s/http\:\/\///; #get rid of "http://" if it's there if ($URL =~ m/\/$/) { #check for trailing slash $trailingslash = 'true'; #(i.e. get / } else { $trailingslash = 0; } my ($HOST,@temppage) = split('/', $URL); my $PAGE = join('/', @temppage); if (($trailingslash) && ($PAGE)) { $PAGE = "/$PAGE/"; #reattach the trailing slash } else { $PAGE = "/$PAGE"; } socket(HTML, PF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, getprotobyname('tcp')) || die $!; connect(HTML, sockaddr_in(80,inet_aton($HOST))); my $REQUEST = "GET $PAGE HTTP/1.0\n\n"; send(HTML, $REQUEST, ''); while(<HTML>) { print; #to STDOUT } close HTML;

of course, we could just make the program respond to 301 Moved Permanently. ha.

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.
