( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have a simple program to check the validity of links before submitting them to search engines (code below.)

This code declares that "incomplete" URLS, like  http://www.mysite.com/mydir are no good -- when, in fact, they work just fine in a browser (and when submited to search engines). The "problem" with these URLs is that the full path all the way down to file isn't explicitly specified, I think.

My question is how do I get LWP useragent to act like a browser and find the default page in a directory?

thanks

nop

package MyUA; use base qw(LWP::UserAgent); use strict; use CGI qw/:standard/; sub redirect_ok {1}; sub new { my $class = shift; my $self = new LWP::UserAgent; bless($self, $class); return $self; } sub validURL { my ($self, $url) = @_; my $req = new HTTP::Request POST => $url; my $res = $self->request($req); my $content = $res->content; return 0 unless $res->is_success; return 0 if $content =~ /the page you have requested cannot be fou +nd/i; return 1; } 1;

  • 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.
