( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
This looks exactly like what i need, but being a bit of a perl novice I'm still not able to use this advice as I'd like.

I am trying to write a web page that will allow the surfer to enter a url, fetch the page content, then process the content (partially translate it into German**.), and produce a new copy of the now modified page. This would be fine if all the pages the surfer wanted were behind the university firewall were my proto-script lives. Of course, I want them to be able to access the entire web. If anyone could explain why the LWP::UserAgent method below doesn't solve my problem I'd be very grateful.

Title:
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.
