in thread LWP::Simple Getstore memory

Yes, I want to download files directly to the disk, without a huge memory buffer. Content_file looks like it practically replaces the need for getstore, as you can simply set the content_file to the filename and store the file that way - without ever reading the file to memory. Am I missing something here, or is it essentially a getstore replacement?

    Yes, replacement.

    You were using LWP::Simple, it's simple interface to LWP::UserAgent.

    But LWP::UserAgent (which have content_file option) is not "Simple" it's full version.

    Also I believe this comment Re: LWP::Simple Getstore memory probably correct, and getstore should not eat so much memory. It looks like it's implemented same way as content_file option.

[stevieb]: yeah, I snowshoe a fair amount in the mountains. I also use spikes similar to these very often as well
[perldigious]: Discipulus: alternate link
[stevieb]: LOL you can easily replace "Helsinki" with "Alberta"
[perldigious]: I used to live at the top of a very steep hill stevieb, I can relate to the video. Literally used to have to build up momentum and try to force my vehicle to make it up the hill to park in my driveway properly... didn't always make it.
[choroba]: Why don't they use tire chains?
[perldigious]: First snow, probably not prepared right away choroba.
[stevieb]: it's Quebec... they do weird stuff there :) In the mountains, it is *mandatory* for trucks to use tire chains. Many passenger vehicles do as well (but it's not mandatory for them)
[perldigious]: That stuff can hit fast... like what we just got where I'm at. Saw a few people who had slid OUT of the roundabout I have to drive through to get to work, not used to the ice yet, take awhile to get the hang of it again and make vehicle adjustments.
[stevieb]: man, when the roads are glare ice, I don't even bother going to work or out... unless I absolutely have to, or was already out in the first place
