LWP::Simple is beautiful code

| No Comments

Michael Schwern has written a column for Andy Oram's Beautiful Code blog called LWP::Simple - Simple Goal, Simple Interface. In it, he talks about minimizing the "gulf of execution" with a two-line easy-to-understand Perl program:

use LWP::Simple;
my $page = get("http://www.google.com");

Bravo to Schwern to getting the words "Perl" and "beautiful code" together. I can't wait to see part two.
