( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Right, after considerable research, I've finally gotten to the point where my Perl script connects to a remote server and POSTs data to it successfully. But there's a problem. The page may /look/ like the right page on the remote server, but surprise! the URL in the browser's field is that of my script. Which means that when I click on a link, if the URL is relative rather than absolute, I get a 404 error.

For example, here's

use HTTP::Request::Common qw( POST ); use LWP::UserAgent; print "Content-type:text/html\n\n"; my $ua = new LWP::UserAgent; my $req = POST '', [ node_id => '479' ]; my $res = $ua->request($req)->content; if ($res->is_success) { print $res->content; } else { print $res->error_as_HTML; }
Now, if you try to click on any link there, will spit back a 404.

How do I tweak the code so that I'm /actually/ at perlmonks, rather than elfhill?

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.
