LWP::UserAgent interaction w/ Archive::Zipby SparkeyG (Curate)
|on Jul 10, 2001 at 21:12 UTC||Need Help??|
SparkeyG has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am writing a program that will connect to a FTP server using LWP and d/l a zip compressed file. I am able to fetch the file, save it to disk, uncompress the file using Archive::Zip, and parse the resulting data.
The question I put before you is: How can I skip the save file to disk step and unzip the file directly from the UA's output? I understand that I can get a reference to $ua->content, but I haven't figured out how to pass that to a Archive::Zip object, which appears to only work on files and FHs.
This is the code I have right now, assume all objects were properly started before this snippit:
This works, but saves the file to disk on line 4. I want to be able to take $ua->contents and use it for the zip file on line 8, $zip->read ($file).
Any help would be nice.
