Re: Small patch to 'check`for lwp-5

Hi,

I've been using the patch provided by Bernhard Weisshuhn on this newgroup
to use the lwp-request call.  I've found that in order to handle server
errors properly I had to take out some 'die' lines in the code, otherwise
the script will exit too early without printing any of the error messages
to the user.

I don't know if this was a problem when using the original 'get' command,
or whether it is something particular to my computer (running Linux Redhat
5.1).

The changes are as follows:

--------------------------
Old code:
--------------------------
open( URI, "$grabber \"$uri_escaped\" |" ) || die "couldn't retrieve
uri: $!";
@file = <URI>;
close( URI ) || die "couldn't close uri retrieval pipe: $!";

--------------------------
New code:
--------------------------
open( URI, "$grabber \"$uri_escaped\" |" );
# || die "couldn't retrieve uri: $!";
@file = <URI>;
close( URI );
#|| die "couldn't close uri retrieval pipe: $!";


Regards,
Matt Gray.
