in thread HTTP GET with a timer

Greetings, lastbronx4u

If I were you, and attempting to deduce what's wrong with the script. I'd probably drop/comment the timer lines. Until I got the script working. I might also dump the 2 cache lines as well. I think you want to add

$req->content_type('application/whatever-pdf-mimetype-is');
to whatever the mimetype for PDF documents are. In fact, you might even better choose raw, or choose binmode. Given that the PDF is binary, and embeded in the web page.

I'll do a little experimenting. If I find anything better/useful. I'll update this post.

Best wishes.

Maybe the following will provide what you need -- worked for me:

use LWP::UserAgent; $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new; my $req = HTTP::Request->new(GET => 'http://full-url-you-want-or-are-requesting'); # following line defines what will be saved to your machine $res = $ua->request($req, "html-filename-dot-html-part--index-dot +-html-for-example"); if ($res->is_success) { print "ok\n"; } else { print $res->status_line, "\n"; }

Yes. What say about me, is true.
