Regarding this reader comment,

Page 106 in Web Client Programming with perl shows a Module with a list of classes that are drasticly different than what I'm able to download from the Internet and as a result, most of the examples in the book don't work. please note: HTML::Parse (the module that the book uses and isn't clear how to download) is at: http://www.perl.com/modules/by-module/HTML/HTML-Tree-0.51.tar.gz After that, all the examples should work.
