    I want to open a remote file and parse it for headlines then write result to a file that I can include in my webpage.

    Do you have access on the other machine? You could possibly (this is probably dodgy):

    open(FH,"| rsh host.com cat filename");
    @stuff = <FH>;
    close(FH);

    Or you could use the LWP module if you're grabbing it off another site. And then do what you want with it.

    You can use any script from www.hotscripts.com to the grabbing and use a script for caching which will make a copy of the results locally.
    the script is also at www.hotscripts.com
