( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Dear Monks,

I need help web crawling. I need to obtain the html code in the web page itself. I have tried WWW::Mechanize and URI to convert it to an absolute URL. But I have failed so far.

Can someone please help me crawl through or download the html code of the webpage of

www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/935226/000114420411058092/0001144204-11-058092-index.htm

Here is the code trying to crawl the edgar website

use strict; use WWW::Mechanize; use LWP::Simple; use URI; my $url='edgar/data/1750/0001104659-06-059326-index.html'; my $web='www.sec.gov/Archives/'.$url; my @temp=split(/\//,$url); chomp($web); my $rel_url='/'.$temp[2].'/'.$temp[3]; my $base_url='www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data'; my $abs_url=URI->new_abs($rel_url,$base_url); my $text=get($abs_url) or die $!;

This is the SEC Edgar data base and once I figure out how to crawl through I can do the parsing. I just need the information between the "div class="infoHead"Items div" Thank you so much!
