foreach(@urls){ my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new(); my $url = "$_"; my $response = $ua->head($url); #HTTP::Response type return my $headers = $response->headers(); # HTTP::Headers type return my $content_type =$headers->content_type(); # string print "$content_type\n"; if($content_type eq 'application/pdf'){ print "File Exists:\n $_"; } elsif($content_type eq 'text/html'){ print "File Exists but requires subscription to access:\n"; } elsif ($response->is_success) {{ print "No Idea how to parse $content_type\n""; } else{ print"No Match Found\n"; }
