in reply to Can You Explain How to Check a Link for Deadness

Greetings,

In addition to all the good things that have been said about LWP, there are things that LWP gets right that the sample code does not: authentication and proxies, for instance (though I am not sure that LWP::Simple foots the bill completely)

As for checking wether you have LWP:

perl -MLWP -e 'print "Hello\n"'

Cheers,
alf
