arthurg has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

running this program:
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; require LWP::UserAgent; my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new; my $response = $ua->get('http://search.cpan.org/'); print Dumper $response; if ($response->is_success) { print $response->decoded_content; }
generates this output

      thanks, yeah, I'm doing some forced installs now.

      obviously, whether libwww-perl failed or not, depends on your definition of "fail" and "obviously".

      but a non-programmer, not privy to special definitions of "fail" and "obviously", would look at this and say "it didn't work, that is, it failed".
