or, if you want to learn how things work.. and communicate with raw sockets and "re-invent the wheel" which I find is FAR more educationally valuable than modules, you can:
#!/usr/bin/perl use Socket; use strict; my $line; my $URL = ""; $URL =~ s/http\:\/\///; my ($HOST,@temppage) = split('/', $URL); my $PAGE = join('/', @temppage); if(!$PAGE) { $PAGE = "/"; } $PAGE = "/$PAGE"; open(OUTFILE, ">html.out"); socket(HTML, PF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, getprotobyname('tcp')) || die $!; connect(HTML, sockaddr_in(80,inet_aton($HOST))); my $REQUEST = "GET $PAGE HTTP/1.0\n\n"; send(HTML, $REQUEST, ''); while(<HTML>) { print OUTFILE; } close HTML; close OUTFILE;
And like I said, its more time efficient to use the LWP module.. but this way you're actually using just perl, and not relying on some machine to have lynx, or LWP installed.. and its fun! :)

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.
