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

Hi monks,

Can we scrape the whole HTML page (including iframe, static and flash images) using LWP?

Is there any modules to convert the whole HTML page (including static and flash images) to PDF?
Regards,
Arun.

    For downloading the page including images try lwp-rget.

    There are some modules to convert HTML to PDF, e.g. PDF::FromHTML. CPAN is your best friend! :)

    But you cannot convert flash movies to PDF at all :)

      This module has a horrible time installing and compiling. 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4smp #1 SMP Thu Jun 2 23:08:39 EDT 2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux Maybe it's the deps, although I appear to have them all.
