Perl is frustrating me. Stupid websites are frustrating me.

Whenever a site doesn't include a feature I need, I usually end up including it for them. OpenBSD.org doesn't have a search engine, so I fired up ht://Dig. Now, a certain music review site lists old reviews alphabetically. What a mess! I am trying to use perl to spider through the entire site and dump most of the info to a database. The main perl module for web data harvesting is LWP, but it took me about 3 hours to get it installed. It has 35,836 different dependencies and it just would NOT install on an OpenBSD 3.0 box through CPAN. I finally got it to work using CPAN on a 3.1 box. I should have tried the port first, but oh well. More to come.
