Perhaps you should try to use LWP::Simple instead... it will indeed work almost as your made up example. It won't tell you the content-type... but do you really need it? I rarely do.


  • get to retrieve the contents of a URL into a variable
  • getprint to print the contents of URL, without having to pull it into memory first (saves memory if it's huge)
  • getstore to save the contents of a URL directly to file, without holding it in memory first.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.
