in thread How to get back the url of a page

cormanaz is right. This image site sometimes redirects images to an IP address when the servers are getting high traffic. I need to be able to load the original image URL and detect whether or not it's going to redirect me. If so, I need to know what the address is of the image.

This is my current set up.

foreach my $pic (@pics) { my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new(); $mech->agent_alias( 'Windows IE 6' ); $mech->get($pic); my $location = $mech->uri(); push(@final_pics, "$location"); print "\ntesting $pic with location $location"; }

    uri is always the location
    use strict; use warnings; use WWW::Mechanize; my $url = 'http://google.com'; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new(); warn $url; warn $mech->get($url); warn $mech->uri(); __END__ http://google.com at - line 9. HTTP::Response=HASH(0x1d7f160) at - line 10. http://www.google.com/ at - line 11.
