For the sake of maintainability though I think I will avoid using this crafty method.

It is not at all clear to me why you think it need be a maintenance problem. Just wrap it over in a function something like:

sub getWithStatus { my $url = shift; my $content; open my $RAM, '>', \$content; my $stdoutsaved = select; select *$RAM; my $status = getprint( $url ); select $stdoutsaved; close $RAM; return $status, $content; } ... my( $status, $content ) = getWithStatus( $url ); if( $status ne RC_OK ) { die "Get $url failed with HTTP status: $status"; } ...

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    Good point.

    For some reason I envisioned just pasting that inline. Obviously it is appropiate to put in a function.
