I want to create a robot that spiders a handful of small sites a couple of times a day and sends me an e-mail notification when it finds an updated page. I tried to creating a program that used the WWW::Robot module but can't because WWW::Robot is badly out of date. This has already been discussed at a WWW::Robot robot ?.

So I'm trying to figure out where to go from here. I'd really appreciate some ideas that will save me from reinventing the wheel.

In reply to WWW::Robot no longer compatible with LWP::RobotUA. Now what? by nysus
