in reply to LWP::Simple and redirects

Are you GETting the page or POSTing.
If you use POST your problem may come from strict RFC compliance.

    Yes. I have written a subclass of LWP::UserAgent that replicates Netscape's behavior (ie. it will follow POST redirects but it will turn them into GETs before doing so). A lot of web applications rely on this non-standard behavior in browsers, making it a de-facto standard, so I think it would be a good idea to integrate such a class to LWP. I have just posted the code for it here

    By the way, overriding redirect_ok() to make UserAgent follow POST redirects is not enough, because redirects won't be converted into GETs, as browsers do. More on the subject at Redirect after POST behavior in LWP::UserAgent differs from Netscape's.
