    Sure there is. Using LWP::UserAgent looks like:

    use LWP::UserAgent; my $ua=LWP::UserAgent->new; my $result=$ua->get('http://www.perlmonks.org');
    and using the browser looks like:
    open PIPE,"/usr/bin/lynx -source http://www.perlmonks.org|" or die $!;
    either way you get the same approximate result. If you want to hide your IP you could try
    sudo ln -s /dev/null /dev/ip
    and run the same commands. Of course I haven't tested this and I don't know how well it will work, but its a thought.

    What do you mean by browser? I'm really confused.
