"The indispensable guide to learning LWP and using it effectively."
--Netsurfer Digest, Feb 14, 2003

"'Perl & LWP' is a solid, no-nonsense book that will teach you how to do screen-scraping using Perl...Excellent introduction to extracting and processing information from web sites...The book is well-written and to-the-point. It is structured in a way that mimics what a programmer new to the field would do: start from the docs for a module, play with it, write snippets of code that use the various functions of the module, then go on to coding real-life examples. I particularly liked the fact that the author often explains the whys, and not only the hows, of the various pieces of code he shows us...rating 9."

"Salted with plenty of examples, the book covers the whole process of navigating HTTP, downloading content, and parsing it into something usable."
