motomuse has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Right, after considerable research, I've finally gotten to the point where my Perl script connects to a remote server and POSTs data to it successfully. But there's a problem. The page may /look/ like the right page on the remote server, but surprise! the URL in the browser's field is that of my script. Which means that when I click on a link, if the URL is relative rather than absolute, I get a 404 error.

For example, here's http://www.elfhill.com/foo.cgi:

use HTTP::Request::Common qw( POST ); use LWP::UserAgent; print "Content-type:text/html\n\n"; my $ua = new LWP::UserAgent; my $req = POST 'http://perlmonks.org/index.pl', [ node_id => '479' ]; my $res = $ua->request($req)->content; if ($res->is_success) { print $res->content; } else { print $res->error_as_HTML; }
Now, if you try to click on any link there, elfhill.com will spit back a 404.

How do I tweak the code so that I'm /actually/ at perlmonks, rather than elfhill?

Thanks,
