Re: downloading files from websites automatically in windows

in reply to Downloading html content

Hi,

Use LWP::Simple to fetch files from the WWW easily. You could automatically save them to the local filesystem using the mirror() function. E.g. (this is right out of my head, not tested):

use LWP::Simple; # An array of array refs whith remote url and local file my @files = (["http://foo.bar/baz1.html", "C:/.../baz1.html"], ["http://bar.foo/zab2.html", "C:/.../zab2.html"]); for my $duplet (@files) { mirror($duplet->[0], $duplet->[1]); }

A more detailed/specific recipe will require that you tell more about what you are trying to achieve.
