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

Hi, I would like to visit a web page, get its http response, and print it. I tried following code, but it's always timeout.

#! /usr/perl/bin use warnings; use strict; use LWP::Simple; my $page_content = get(""); unless (defined $page_content) { die "doc content is not undef\n"; } print $page_content,"\n";

Besides, I found that, in LWP::Simple, the function _trivial_http_get() cannot build socket connection to target website and return with undef every time.

my $sock = IO::Socket::INET->new(PeerAddr => $host, PeerPort => $port, Proto => 'tcp', Timeout => 30) || return undef;

$port is 80 by default.

Thank you very much for your time.

    I got
    var hq_str_sh601006="??????,7.37,7.34,7.42,7.43,7.29,7.40,7.43,176707 +75,129752670,28317,7.40,13000,7.39,57549,7.38,126200,7.37,70300,7.36, +655502,7.43,130600,7.44,268071,7.45,37000,7.46,12500,7.47,2011-09-14, +15:03:05";
    Is that something like you were expecting?
      Yes, that's it. I have no idea if it work against my system firewall.

    Your code works here, for me, on linux. Maybe you have a firewall ( or similar) problem?

      Thanks, my Windows firewall is turned off, but my Synmantec control cannot be accessed, due to maybe some company policy. Any way, thank you and wfsp again.
