Finding the URL of this imageby sulfericacid (Deacon)
|on May 16, 2007 at 23:13 UTC||Need Help??|
sulfericacid has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I posted a SOPW earlier without a good example, so here's a second shot. I'm using WWW::Mechanize to grab URLs of images from a particular web site. The problem is, once in a while the server seems to redirect the image URL to another location with an IP address.
I need to find a way to determine what the FINAL url of the image is, so one way or another I need to know if it redirects or will load the first URL.
A good example is this link (it is safe for work, just a Spiderman picture) http://images.imagefap.com/images/full/31/459/459526477.jpg. You'll notice it makes your browser go to http://188.8.131.52:99/31a/full/459/459526477.jpg instead. It's the same URL after the domain name/IP address.
How can I get my script to load the IP address if it pops up?
