there is a Network.HTTP module, but it is not easy to use

what you want is the equivalent of perl's LWP::Simple, which provides
get() and head() functions

i have heard that this is being worked on, in the meantime i personally
use this wrapper:


that i wrote myself to provide simple get and head functionality with
some trivial redirect support

i use this module routinely so it should work, although i have only
tested it on freebsd and linux

no one else has ever looked at this so feel free to send critiques, it
is mostly a hack of the get() example script distributed with the
Network.HTTP module
