Perl & Search engines.

Q:
I'd like to know if it is possible to send a request to a search
engine(maybe google) via Perl and get back the response. If so, how can
this be done?

I need to do this to evaluate a site based on the search submitted.

Im using Perl5.

Thanx a lot,
*NAME-DELETED*.
A:
To do such thing in Perl you have to use some extension module, like CURL
or Net::HTTP.

Read the documentation of these modules and if you still have question do
not hesitate to contact me.

regards,
Peter
