Did you type it in and perhaps mistyped something?

For me, the example + worked straight out of the box - almost. I downloaded the example zip file from the book and unzipped it.

Working on Win2k, I got this error on my first attempt to run it

"EINPROGRESS" is not exported by the Errno module at H:\devperl\socket +s\perl_networking\ch13\ line 12
I found a workaround
use POSIX qw(:errno_h); #use Errno 'EINPROGRESS';

After this, I successfully retrieved a couple of perlmonks nodes: ours and yours


Note: I also added the line to modify $localpath

$localpath .= "index.html" if $localpath =~ m!/$!; $localpath =~ s/[\?\=\&]/-/g; # Rudif
so that the URL of a perlmonks node translates into a valid filename (HTTPFetch stores the retrieved URL content into a local file of similar name).

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.
