in reply to replacement for LWP::Simple ?

Do what everyone else here suggests (install LWP::Simple locally -- you can do it without root permissions it's just tedious) and use this only as a last resort. No warranties are implied. If you ask followup questions on how to use it I'll disavow all knowledge of you and label you a pest. :)

But it will fetch web pages using only the base installation of Perl.

use IO::Socket; use strict; use warnings; my $sock=new IO::Socket::INET( PeerAddr => '', PeerPort => 80, Proto => 'tcp', Type => SOCK_STREAM); die "No socket" unless $sock; print $sock "GET 1.0\n\n"; my $answer=join('', <$sock>);
