      Thanks for the quick reply.

      Ive tried the use HTML::Parser; but its not supported.
      I'm using http://netfirms.com

      but their http://netfirms.com/support/cgi.html file
      doesnt support it (as yet) - I'll e-mail them as to
      what 'USE' files I can access - that will take a few
      days or so for them to reply.

      but ive found a lib.com.pl file at :-
      http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Programs_and_Scripts/Perl/Libraries_and_Modules/

      (near the bottom)

      will that file work suitably ?

      PS - the netfirms.com is the only site I know of that
      supports CGi/PERl - and is FREE. - Any others I should
      of ?


      Thanks.
      Gordon.

        One is :
        http://www.virtualave.net

        But they don't support LWP module ( or the GET func as you can say ) because
        it consumes their
        system resources .. they also don't support heavy duty cgis ..

        Can anyone tell me some host which supports CGI scripts ( free ) and has LWP
        module installed
        ( or any other module which I can use to retrieve webpages from other
        sites ) .. I'll need that
        host for my CGIs only.. or if anyone of you has his own server can he
        please give me free
        webspace , please..

        thanx in advance.

        Reply ASAP.
        Bi!
