in reply to Call URL

You could LWP::Simple... Although you don't get HTTP response codes, so you'd have to check the page sent back for something to indicate success...

use LWP::Simple; get($smsurl);

@_=qw; ask f00li5h to appear and remain for a moment of pretend better than a lifetime;;s;;@_[map hex,split'',B204316D8C2A4516DE];;y/05/os/&print;

    so you'd have to check the page sent back for something to indicate success...

    It's easier just using LWP::UserAgent.

    use LWP::UserAgent; my $response = LWP::UserAgent->new()->get($smsurl); die if !$response->is_success;

      quoth LWP::Simple::get

      The get() function will fetch the document identified by the given URL and return it. It returns undef if it fails.

        Good to know. I was just going by what you said (that the page would need to be checked).
