This is a revised repost of the last node I made a week ago. I am using LWP::Simple and UserAgent to parse links on a website, what I need to do is install a timeout feature for all these servers that take 2+ minutes to get ahold of. And on top of this, instead of timing out and skipping it without error, I NEED to print an error saying "Hey cowboy, this one timed out!" or something, as long as it doesn't just pretend it never existed.
My original post was refering to LWP::Simple, maybe I should have said I was using UserAgent? Does this make any difference?
I am parsing every link on a page (or trying to), but not if it takes more than 20 seconds to get a response from that server. Any ideas how to do a timeout like this?
