Also! May I suggest that you take a look at the WWW::Mechanize module on CPAN?
Depending upon your requirements, you may be better recommended to employ the Google Web API using SOAP::Lite - There is an example of employing this interface with SOAP::Lite both in the examples directory of the SOAP::Lite package (in fact, this example returns the number of search results in the same manner which you are attempting to achieve with your code) and at


perl -le "print unpack'N', pack'B32', '00000000000000000000001011101011'"

    Or you could make life even easier and use Net::Google (which abstracts the SOAP::Lite for you).
    my @a=qw(random brilliant braindead); print $a[rand(@a)];
