in reply to Download only part of a file from the web

Hi funstence.

I wrote a simple program that you might find useful.
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use LWP::Simple; my $file = 'test.txt'; my $content = get('http://www. google.com'); open FH, " >", "$file" or die "Error: $!\n"; print FH $content until -s $file >= 25; # I routinely include code to check for a successful closing # of the filehandle since a hardware error could occur. close FH or die "Error: $!\n";


Hope this helps,
~Katie
