There's no need to use URI::URL. Change the HTML::SimpleLinkExtor code to return absolute instead of relative paths.

There is a comment in my code in my last reply noting that my code currently returns relative paths and pointing you to the module docs. RTFM :-)


If the information in this post is inaccurate, or just plain wrong, don't just downvote - please post explaining what's wrong.
That way everyone learns.

    I have been trying to build in your error checking, as well as tie it into a DBM for when it crashes. Heres what I got:
    #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use warnings; use LWP::RobotUA; use HTML::SimpleLinkExtor; use vars qw/$http_ua $link_extractor/; sub crawl { my @queue = @_; my %visited; my $a = 42464; my $base; dbmopen(%visited, "visited", 0666); while ( my $url = shift @queue ) { next if $visited{$url}; my $response = $http_ua->get($url); if ($response->is_success) { my $content = $response->content open FILE, '>' . ++$a . '.txt'; print FILE "$url\n"; print FILE $content; close FILE; print qq{Downloaded: "$url"\n}; push @queue, do { my $link_extractor = HTML::SimpleLinkExtor->new($u +rl); $link_extractor->parse($content); $link_extractor->a; }; $visited{$url} = 1; } else { dbmclose(%visited); die $response->status_line; } } } $http_ua = new LWP::RobotUA theusefulbot => 'bot@theusefulnet.com'; $http_ua->delay( 10 / 6000 ); crawl(@ARGV);
    This gives me: Can't call method "is_success" without a package or object reference at theusefulbot.pl line 21.

    Any Ideas?

    Thank you
