in thread Mimicing browser with LWP

When I ran it in netscape, I disabled javascript so that I could leave the keywords field blank.

Anyway, adding keywords with LWP doesn't help any:

When I use category Information Technology, and keyword programmer, netscape gives 75 matches, but with LWP it still says, "You must specify some information to search on."


I guess your idea of writing a debugging proxy is probably what I'll need to figure this out. Do you have it? I could write my own, I guess, but it's nice to recycle :)

    If I still have it somewhere (which I doubt), it's on a tape for which I currently don't have a drive to read.

    I prefer to use an ethernet sniffer for network protocol debugging. Look into tcpdump, which is free. There are also some very expensive but very good windows sniffers available. Iris is a particularly sexy one which comes to mind.
