in reply to
Local::SiteRobot - a simple web crawling module
This was where my journey hit a stumbling block ... WWW::SimpleRobot didn't work!
Rather than partially reinvent a wheel, did you try to work with the author to figure out why it "didn't work"? And can you please explain what "didn't work" for you? I've used the module successfully, as have many hundreds of others.
"forking" a codebase should be considered carefully, otherwise the open source
users as a community all lose.
