Try using LWP::Simple. (The docs are self-explanatory)

    I tried this bit of code pretty much right from the cpan LWP page and got the following errors in my error log.
    #!usr/bin/perl -w # Create a user agent object use LWP::UserAgent; $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new; $ua->agent("MyApp/0.1 "); # Create a request my $req = HTTP::Request->new(GET => 'http://www.e-gold.com/unsecure/ +metaldata.asp?LATEST=1&GOLD=1'); $req->content_type('application/x-www-form-urlencoded'); # $req->content('LATEST=1&GOLD=1'); # Pass request to the user agent and get a response back my $res = $ua->request($req); # Check the outcome of the response if ($res->is_success) { print $res->content; } else { print "Bad luck this time\n"; }

      First you need to figure out why your web server isn't allowed to write to it's logs, but that isn't a perl issue. Second you need to try running that script from the command line and figure out why it's dying early. The first problem I see is on the very fist line (should be #!/usr/bin/perl -w).

    Will that work with SSL?
      Sorry, didn't see the 's' there. No, I don't think LWP::Simple supports SSL, but it'll work with LWP (the more complex version of LWP::Simple). Support in LWP is transparent, it seems. It's not too much harder to use either.

        Ok. I've never tried using modules before, but I'll give it a whirl... try something easy with it first.
