in reply to Talk to Bob

I'd really like to be able to talk to Bob! unfortunately it is not working for me, I can access the the url that is stored in $url via a web browser but when I run the code I get the following error causing me problems: Can't call method "value" on an undefined value at C:\Documents and Settings\me\My Documents\work\perl\bob.pl line 35. So I figured I'd check out what I retrieved from $respons->content; This is what's retrieved

    It looks like you're going through a proxy server. Maye be that's why LWP::UserAgent didn't work. You shouldn't try to make it work however if that means you need to put some proxy information in the script. It's not considered a good security practice.

    On IE browser, you may go to Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings to see if in fact you're using a proxy. On Netscape or Mozilla, Edit > Preferences > Advanced > Proxies.

    If you use AOL like that, all the web contents are cached on the server side and you can do nothing about it.

    Should you post for further help, remember DON'T post your proxy settings on the web. It could be risky.
