      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!
