I'm using LWP::UserAgent to interact with a third party search engine. The full list of searchable items is about 1500. If I restrict the search to a small number of results the delay is manageable. However the more items the more lengthy the delay.

If I go to the page in my browser the search is actually much more rapid, the results are printed but each result has an image and it takes a long time for the page to complete loading.

I'm wondering if the delay on printing the results via LWP is because the server waits for activity to stop before it prints the results. In which case is it possible to stop the script prematurely and print any output to screen - I could then try to balance the times to achieve a happy medium.

Or if there are other things that might be tried...

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