Good day fellow monks. I am having trouble with what I thought would be a simple task, getting a web image and saving it to a file using LWP. My first attempt:
use feature ':5.10'; use LWP::UserAgent; my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new; my $response = $ua->get(' +ging_a_tube.jpg'); if ($response->is_success) { my $content = $response->decoded_content; open(OUT,">c:/temp/test.jpg") or die "Can't open output: $!"; binmode OUT; print OUT $content; close OUT; } else { say "Fail" }
resulted in a successful get and a file written with "wide character" warning, but the file was not renderable.

So then I tried another method that I thought was designed for this very task:

use LWP::Simple; my $success = getstore(' +ing_a_tube.jpg','c:\temp\test.jpg'); say $success;
It gave a completion code of 200, no wide char warning, but also an unrenderable file.

I would prefer to use LWP:UserAgent for this rather then LWP::Simple since I want to get the images in the context of some other web retrieval. What am I doing wrong?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
