in reply to Getting pictures with LWP

I think you may prefer the easier Image::Grab which has a really easy to use interface and easy commands.

Here is your code written over(in the way I would write it :).

sub get_object{ use Image::Grab qw(grab); my($agent, $url, $referer, $save_path) = @_; my($request, $response, $content); $content = grab("$url"); $save_path ? print("Getting picture: $url...") : print("Getting info from $url\n"); return($content) unless ($save_path); open(OUT, ">$save_path") or die("Couldn\'t open picturefile to sav +e: $!"); binmode(OUT); print(OUT $content); close(OUT); }


$_.=($=+(6<<1));print(chr(my$a=$_));$^H=$_+$_;$_=$^H; print chr($_-39); # Easy but its ok.

    I would use this, but being able to specify the "referer" parameter in the requests I make is key in the script this is part of, and Image::Grab doesn't provide that functionality, AFAIK.
