in thread use vs. require in LWP::Simple

The arguments to import or use are simply (for most modules) the names of the subs or variables to be imported. It is generally preferable to only import the things you will use, so as to avoid cluttering the main:: namespace. On the other hand sometimes you will want to import things that are not imported by default.

You probably want

use LWP::Simple 'get'; # or require LWP::Simple; import LWP::Simple 'get'; # which actually parses as LWP::Simple->import('get');
