I'm not sure why you need to 'reverse engineer' legacy Perl code (decipher, maybe ;^), but your right in thinking there's a better way ... well, simpler anyway.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use LWP::UserAgent; use HTTP::Request::Common qw/ GET /; my $url = shift; my $browser = LWP::UserAgent->new; my $response = $browser->request( GET $url ); print $response->code;

Personally, I think $response->is_success would be more beneficial as 200 isn't the only response indicating success, but that's your call...

One caveat, tho:- test against a known good site before anything else ... LWP::UserAgent returns a 500 error instead of undef if you don't have have the modules necessary to talk to SSL (aka https) servers.

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.
