Since nobody else has commented, I will add mine. WONDERFUL!

I've got a few ideas for this, and it actually is very close to the spider I've been working on for Plucker in my spare time. Bear with me while I brain-dump these out:

  1. LWP::Parallel::UserAgent to fetch content asynchronously.
  2. HTTP::Cookies for storing client-side cookies into the "jar"
  3. Link rewrite rules, so gathering/spidering the content locally after fetching can be done with relative/absolute links, without breaking anything. (URI::URL can help here)
  4. Ability to forge Referer and UserAgent strings through the use of --referer and --useragent. Trivial to add.
  5. More verbose progress reporting (use LWP::Debug qw(+);)
  6. Options for staying on the same host, same domain, or staying below a certain fragment of the URI. Something like:
    # url --staybelow --stayonhost --stayondomain
  7. Ability to update the "cache" on multiple runs. Compare the remote file with the local file, and fetch if newer.

Expect some patches from me to come flying in within the next few weeks on this one. Great work!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • 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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
