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

Putting that code in an infinite loop is a terrible strategy. It could be a horrendous strain on the server if it's got high load currently (okay, so this probably isn't one of your concerns), it doesn't make it easy to add new code, and it reads horribly.

Using system to get the fiels you want is also pointless. You've already shown that you can use LWP::UserAgent to get pages; why not just get the files with that?

$ua->request(HTTP::Request->new(GET => "$link", $link)

That'll store the file in a local file of the same name. (Might have some security implications, I don't know the internals of simple_request). Anyway, you don't really need to do this, when you have <plug>pronbot</plug> to do it for you, and having a look at the site it will work with it (Note: all disclaimers apply, pronbot's still a work in progress.)
