Keep It Simple, Stupid

There are (IIRC) two ways to redirect ... one is to use a Redirection Header and the other is to use a <meta> tag:
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="15; URL=redirect.html"/>
I set up two (three including the file redirected to) test files:
  1. redirect.html:
    <html> <meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="1; URL=redirected.html"/> <head> <title>redirect</title> </head> <body> you won't see me </body> </html>
  2. cgi-bin/redirect.cgi:
    #!/usr/bin/perl -Tw use strict; use CGI qw(redirect); print redirect('http://localhost/redirected.html');
And then i fetched both pages with LWP::Simple. Here are the results:
[jeffa]$ perl -MLWP::Simple -le'getprint "http://localhost/cgi-bin/red +irect.cgi"' <html> <head> <title>redirected!</title> </head> <body> you've been redirected! </body> </html> [jeffa]$ perl -MLWP::Simple -le'getprint "http://localhost/ +ml"' <html> <meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="1; URL=redirected.html"/> <head> <title>redirect</title> </head> <body> you won't see me </body> </html>
So ... in semi-conclusion, looks like LWP::Simple will transparantly grab the redirected page IF the redirection was implemented with a redirection header, not a meta tag. Hope this helps.

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.
