Well as far as use policy goes, do check. When I run automated scripts, I do it at night during low load times. And I often put in a sleep() after some number of requests to slow things down.

One thing to investigate is whether or not this site provides the information that you need in an easier format than web pages? Many big sites do that. Some sites I use actually have a separate URL for automated requests and even provide tools to use their more efficient computer to computer methods.

On the other hand, this site has "bandwith to burn". I don't think that they will notice 5,000 pages. But do testing with a small set of pages.

in thread getting started with LWP and HTML::TokeParser by Perlbeginner1

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
