It's already written. Look for GET script installed with libwww-perl,
and lwp-request in ActivePerl distribution.

There is also a PERL script that has been around I think at least since 1995, as I used it and still got it (somewhere). From memory:

It was written by a Jack Lund, based on HGET from Oscar Nierstrasz, and the script is called "url_get". I'm sure you can find it somewhere on the Internet.
