LWP strikes again!by motomuse (Sexton)

motomuse has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
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 http://www.elfhill.com/foo.cgi:
Now, if you try to click on any link there, elfhill.com will spit back a 404.
How do I tweak the code so that I'm /actually/ at perlmonks, rather than elfhill?
