URL::Grab ========= URL::Grab is a perl module that drastically simplifies the fetching of files. It is designed to be used in programs that need common (but not necessarily simple) url-fetching features. It is extremely simple to drop into an existing program and provides a clean interface to protocol-independant file-access. Best of all, URL::Grab takes care of all those pesky file-fetching details, and lets you focus on whatever it is that your program is written to do! URL::Grab came into existence as the part of Config::YUM that downloads remote yum-configs and header files, but it quickly became clear that this is a general problem that many applications must deal with. Yes, URL::Grab has been heavily inspired by the famous Python urlgrabber. :-) INSTALLATION To install this module type the following: perl Makefile.PL make make test make install DEPENDENCIES This module requires these other modules and libraries: require Carp; require LWP::UserAgent; COPYRIGHT AND LICENCE Copyright (C) 2006-2008 by Oliver Falk <firstname.lastname@example.org> This library is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the same terms as Perl itself, either Perl version 5.8.0 or, at your option, any later version of Perl 5 you may have available.
