in reply to LWP::Simple? Prototype mismatch?

This happens because both LWP::Simple and CGI are exporting a sub called head. You aren't using LWP::Simple::head so to prevent it from being imported you can replace

use LWP::Simple;
use LWP::Simple qw/get/;

    This is why it's a good practice to always specify exactly what you're importing (either by listing it explicitly or by using an appropriate :TAG), and to explicitly say use Module () if you're not importing anything.
