use strict; use warnings; use LWP::Simple; my $url = "http://whatev.er"; my $content = get($url); $content =~ s/ /%20/g;

    # An example using WWW::Mechanize and URI::Escape
    
    use strict;
    
    use WWW::Mechanize;
    # Create a new mechanize object
    my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new();
    my $url = 'http://www.exampleurl.com/';
    # Associate the mechanize object with a URL
    $mech->get($url);
    # Print the content of the URL
    print $mech->content;
    
    # Load URL::Escape to escape URI's with uri_escape method.
    use URI::Escape;
