    Hey all, I'm new to Perl, trying to create a Perl script that retrieves text
    from another web page, does anyone know of any similar examples on the net
    or anything? I just want something simple to get me going really. I'm
    assuming I'd use HTTP::Request?

    TIA

    Check out LWP::Simple. (It makes use of HTTP::Request, among other
    things, behind the scenes.)

    Try LWP::Simple -- it may be all you need.
