Oh beloved, worshipped, sacred, holy Monks: I have written a script to grab a www page. I have to pass cookies in order to get the page. I can successfully get it, but it seems the cookies arent being used properly. I have asked around among all the perl people I know, but no one can answer this for me.
Can anyone find any problems in this code? The cookies file is correct and standardized... looks like this:
#LWP-Cookies-1.0 Set-Cookie3: id=bob_loblaw; path="/";; path_s +pec; expires="2005-12-31 23:59:33Z"; version=0 Set-Cookie3: username=blahblahblah; path="/"; +; path_spec; expires="2015-11-06 08:09:49Z"; version=0
use strict; use warnings; use LWP::UserAgent; use HTTP::Cookies; my $rssFile = "dump.rss"; my $wwwSite = ""; my $cookieFile = "c:/cookies.txt"; my $browser = LWP::UserAgent->new; $browser->timeout(10); $browser->env_proxy; $browser->cookie_jar(HTTP::Cookies->new(file => $cookieFile )); my $response = $browser->get( $wwwSite ); if ($response->is_success) { open RSSDUMP, ">" . $rssFile; print RSSDUMP $response->content; close RSSDUMP; } else { die $response->status_line; }
