freak has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

How to make an LWP connection so that it will be counted as a View(so that the counters on the website - that counts how many people had entered - will count this connection as a View(as if someone had ectually opened this website in his browser)) ?

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    It depends on how you define "the counters". If that is based on the webserver's logfile, nothing should be done in addition to fetching the page. If it's based on some image (sooo 1990's ;-) you will have to request the image, not the site. But that's cheating ;-)


    All code is usually tested, but rarely trusted.
