in thread a WWW::Robot robot ?

Thanks very much - being of the uninitiated I would have been tearing my hair out for weeks trying to get it to go.

Any suggestions on another direction to take to do the same thing with perl?

    Hi By accident i was looking at someone 's code who had used WWW::Robot to make it do something and his code magically worked(http://www.stonehenge.com/merlyn/WebTechniques/col42.html)

    I realized that he was also using "USERAGENT => LWP::UserAgent->new," when creating an instance of the WWW::Robot. Am not sure if this really works cause i havent writtenm any more code to test for sure(am off for sleep now anyway :)) but it has taken the error message the user above was writing about which i was getting too. Hopefully this is right.
