automatic non-ftp download
Message ID:
Is anyone aware of a Perl module, script, etc. which can perform an
automatic download (similar to lynx)?

So say, I want to download and process the contents of the excel file at
the following site:

With Perls' ParseExcel module, I am able to read, process, and print out
the contents of the downloaded excel file.  However, I will love to
automate both  processes (i.e., using Perl, perform a transparent
dowmnload, and then process the downloaded file).

Any pointers will be very much appreciated.

Thank you..
