README for LWP::UserAgent::Determined Time-stamp: "2004-04-08 22:37:47 ADT" NAME LWP::UserAgent::Determined - a virtual browser that retries errors SYNOPSIS use strict; use LWP::UserAgent::Determined; my $browser = LWP::UserAgent::Determined->new; my $response = $browser->get($url, headers... ); DESCRIPTION This class works just like LWP::UserAgent (and is based on it, by being a subclass of it), except that when you use it to get a web page but run into a possibly-temporary error (like a DNS lookup timeout), it'll wait a few seconds and retry a few times. It also adds some methods for controlling exactly what errors are considered retry-worthy and how many times to wait and for how many seconds, but normally you needn't bother about these, as the default settings are relatively sane. INSTALLATION You install this module, as you would install any perl module library, by running these commands: perl Makefile.PL make make test make install If you want to install a private copy of this module in your home directory, then you should try to produce the initial Makefile with something like this command: perl Makefile.PL LIB=~/perl Then you may need something like setenv PERLLIB "$HOME/perl" in your shell initialization file (e.g., ~/.cshrc). For further information, see perldoc perlmodinstall DOCUMENTATION POD-format documentation is included in this module. POD is readable with the 'perldoc' utility. See ChangeLog for recent changes. SUPPORT Questions, bug reports, useful code bits, and suggestions for this module should just be sent to me at firstname.lastname@example.org AVAILABILITY The latest version of this modules is available from the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network (CPAN).
