Or maybe you want to download files directly to disk, without huge memory buffer.

LWP::UserAgent content_file or content_cb will help then

    Yes, I want to download files directly to the disk, without a huge memory buffer. Content_file looks like it practically replaces the need for getstore, as you can simply set the content_file to the filename and store the file that way - without ever reading the file to memory. Am I missing something here, or is it essentially a getstore replacement?
      Yes, replacement.

      You were using LWP::Simple, it's simple interface to LWP::UserAgent.

      But LWP::UserAgent (which have content_file option) is not "Simple" it's full version.

      Also I believe this comment Re: LWP::Simple Getstore memory probably correct, and getstore should not eat so much memory. It looks like it's implemented same way as content_file option.
