in thread Problem retrieving data using WWW::Curl

Undefined subroutine &main::strftime called at geo_db.pl line 2.
Can't locate object method "new" via package "WWW::Curl::easy" (perhaps you forgot to load "WWW::Curl::easy"?) at geo_db.pl line 14.

Both these errors are consequences of the same basic fact: you are using functions from modules that are not loaded. Before you use functions from a module, you need to explain perl that you will be using these modules. Perl being what it is, that means you just need to tell it so:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use Posix; # strftime() lives here use WWW::Curl::easy; # WWW::Curl::easy::new() lives here

Judging from these questions, you might benefit from reading a good book on learning Perl. Again, Perl being what it is, there is actually a good book called Learning Perl, which I can recommend heartily.

    hi
    yes well i'm more a php guy :)
    but this script is something icould not get to work in php

    that's why i'm trying in perl, but very pourly at that :)

    after adding your lines of code it came back with this error
    Can't locate Posix.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.1/i686-linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1/i686-linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at geo_db.pl line 3. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at geo_db.pl line 3.

    is this a path problem?

      Erm, no... that's me forgetting the correct case. Try this instead:

      use POSIX;
