Actually, you can get some headers from LWP::Simple:
head($url) Get document headers. Returns the following 5 values if succ +essful: ($content_type, $document_length, $modi­fied_time, $expires, +$server) Returns an empty list if it fails. In scalar context return +s TRUE if successful.
although you cant get any headers with the get method. merlyn is right though; you should use LWP::UserAgent instead.
