16 of the Best Free Perl Books - Part 4

13. Web Client Programming with Perl

Web Client Programming

Author Clinton Wong

Web Client Programming with Perl shows you how to extend scripting skills to the Web. This book teaches you the basics of how browsers communicate with servers and how to write your own customized Web clients to automate common tasks. It is intended for those who are motivated to develop software that offers a more flexible and dynamic response than a standard Web browser.

A web client is an application that communicates with a web server, using Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP).

This books helps developers learn how to:

  • Automate repetitive queries on the Web
  • Detect broken hyperlinks on your site
  • Write simple "robots" that traverse hyperlinks across a site, and across the Web in general

Most of the examples in this book use Perl. The book does not teach Perl, but the techniques used in the book should be easily followed by anyone with some programming background and can be adapted to whatever language you choose.
