I am trying to:

Create a Perl script that will take in a URL, access that URL's source-code, and then print out that source-code.

I am having trouble with accessing the source-code via the Perl scipt.  The script is running on a RH5 Linux System.

Any Help? Thanks!

Reading through some more questions, I found this might be done using sockets.

I would kill for some source code at this point!!

Anyone?

1.) Get the libwww module

2.) perldoc lwpcook gives:

<snip>

GET
    It is very easy to use this library to just fetch documents from
    the net. The LWP::Simple module provides the get() function that
    return the document specified by its URL argument:

      use LWP::Simple;
      $doc = get 'http://www.sn.no/libwww-perl/';
