in reply to LWP::Simple? Prototype mismatch?

This happens because both LWP::Simple and CGI are exporting a sub called head. You aren't using LWP::Simple::head so to prevent it from being imported you can replace
use LWP::Simple;
use LWP::Simple qw/get/;

    This is why it's a good practice to always specify exactly what you're importing (either by listing it explicitly or by using an appropriate :TAG), and to explicitly say use Module () if you're not importing anything.

    Aaah... thankyou. Well, they've been building subs left right and centre.. I remember when this was open country as far as they eye could see.. that's progress.. Thanks again, JR
