Thanks for the tips and answers
I'm going to have to revisit this, I think. 'Mech' looks like too much...possibly I should be looking at HTTP::Response as all I want is for the server to tell me if that page is there (the links aren't on a webpage, they're in an xml document).
I'm just going to assume that, for the small amount of pages I'm doing, the inefficiency in time etc doesn't matter. Interrupting the download is something I might follow up if the links multiply too much.
I used the 'HTTP Headers' Chrome install as don't have telnet here, and that seemed to happily give me headers on my pages. I expect it's some quirk in what I'm doing, and maybe time will reveal it to me.
Not helped by my ignorance of headers!
Thanks for the help and if I refine it, I'll report back
