Accessing The Text of Web Sites Can't Post

Hi

I want to be able to enter in a URL and retrieve the text of that web site.

How can I do this?

Thanks

You might want to try searching CPAN for LWP.

yes, LWP or LWP::Simple but you might also have to run the page through an html parsing module like HTML::Parser if you want only text and not the html code too.
