Well, my first post on perlmonks.org...
( and I FSK it up.... sheesh! )
I am working from behind a corporate firewall,
so I tried the LWP example above with my proxy info,
and am getting:
Protocol scheme: 'http://www.slashdot.org/slashdot.xml'
is not supported.
along with what looks like a 501 response in the debugger.
I tried this with a couple of different URLs
and got the same result, so I suspect it may be the proxy
setup. Any ideas?
Just to confirm:
My proxy settings in Netscape show
so I used:
#set up your proxy here
I tried both 80 and 8080 for ports, with the same result.
Any advice appreciated.
