in thread Slashdot Headline Grabber for Win32


Netscape wouldn't give me the source right from the URL, so I went with using a quick LWP script like you suggested, and nabbed the file.

Inserted address and port, and now it works nicely.

I don't have a proxy at home, so last night I ripped it up to grab news headlines from slashdot, cnn, antionline,, and yahoo news and spit them all out on a webpage. Not that hard, but the first time I ever got it to work right.
