With the help of LWP (Library for WWW in Perl), Perl is now just as proficient at receiving content from the Web as it is at producing and managing it. A collection of modules called LWP are used to fetch and process web pages.
In this book, the Library for the Web in Perl (LWP), a collection of modules that facilitate access to and analysis of Web pages (FTP-accessible files and outgoing email messages) from within Perl programs, will be dissected.
The book explains the technical aspects of LWP programming and the enjoyment of working with a language like Perl.
The author makes the assumption that his readers have a basic understanding of HTML and some knowledge of Perl, albeit not much. He does an excellent job of outlining the role that LWP functions play in Perl scripts and how you can use them to reference Internet resources much more quickly than before.
