Three possibilities:

  1. If you want the contents in a file, use getstore instead of get and writing it out yourself:
    perl -MLWP::Simple -e'getstore("file:/cpan/authors/id/P/PM/PMQS/Compre +ss-Raw-Zlib-2.060.tar.gz", "Compress-Raw-Zlib-2.060.tar.gz" )'
  2. Patch your copy of LWP::Simple with a new method (say: getRaw() ) that returns the content rather than the decoded content::
    sub getRaw ($) { my $response = $ua->get(shift); ## return $response->decoded_content if $response->is_success; return $response->content if $response->is_success; return undef; }
  3. use lwp-download [-a] <url> [<local path>]:
    lwp-download file:/cpan/authors/id/P/PM/PMQS/Compress-Raw-Zlib-2.060.t +ar.gz

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
