in reply to Downloading multiple files

I think that Corion has the right idea with tar'ing the files together. A simple way to do it without modules or temporary files is to use backticks:
print(`tar cf - $file1 $file2 $file3`);
More info on doing this can be found at a question I asked earlier: Auto-Backup Questions

    Or use the Archive::TAR module. Saves you the overhead of launching a tar process.
