I am writing a perl script, that needs to read an xml response from twitter, and I would like to use curl and LWP. The Twitter REST call requires a Url as well as a user name and a password. I am having trouble making this work:
my $Url="http://twitter.com/users/show/".$twitterID.".xml"; my $username="something"; my $pwd="pwdSomething"; my $curl = LWP::UserAgent->new; $curl->setopt(CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, 2); $curl->setopt(CURLOPT_HEADER, false); $curl->setopt(CURLOPT_HTTPAUTH, CURLAUTH_BASIC); $curl->setopt(CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1); $curl->setopt(CURLOPT_URL, $Url); $curl->setopt(CURLOPT_USERPWD, "$username:$pwd"); $curl->setopt(CURLOPT_HTTP_VERSION, CURL_HTTP_VERSION_1_1); $curl->setopt( CURLOPT_POST, 1 ); my $xmlResponse = $curl->perform;
