Re: reading a remote file in perl

There's More Than One Way To Do It... but here's a simple method if
you're on Unix: use the built-in Lynx browser, like this (note the
backticks):

@remote_text = `lynx -source http://remote.site.com/page.html`;

... and that's it! You now have the entire text stored neatly in an
array. If you want to put it in a file, do something like this:

$remote_text = join ('',@remote_text);
open (FILE,'>/path/to/your/file.txt');
print FILE "$remote_text";
close (FILE);

Hope it helps...
