Hi all...

How do I tell my user-agent (an LWP::UserAgent object) to NOT download both
/ and index.html or whatever remote sites DirectoryIndex set to?
Example, my user-agent sees 2 link:
- http:://www.domain.com/
- http:://www.domain.com/index.html
IF in this situation both link to the same document, my user-agent will be a
fool if it tries to download both file. How do I make a "smarter" user-agent
that will know that those 2 links are the same and only perform one GET
method, either to http:://www.domain.com/ OR
http:://www.domain.com/index.html?

Thanks...

/john
