Perl Curl

I am re-writing my rets application in perl, and I have found a few modules that will help me on my way. One of them being WWW::Curl:easy.

During my testing, I have tested both system curl and perl curl. At this point I can get the system curl to correctly connect to my server. However, I am having the hardest time trying to figure out why I cant get perl curl to connect to the server.

Every time I try to connect, I get a 401 error. I am using the same connection method that I would use if I was using system curl.

Here is my current code. Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

Perl Code w/ WWW::Curl:easy -

  1.         $curl->setopt(CURLOPT_URL, $site);
  2.         $curl->setopt(CURLOPT_USERPWD,'$user:$pass');
  3.         $curl->setopt(CURLOPT_HTTPAUTH,CURLAUTH_DIGEST);
  4.  
  5.         $curl->perform;
  6.         my $err = $curl->errbuff;
  7.         my $info = $curl->getingo(CURLINFO_HTTP_CODE);

use double-quotes when you have to join scalars to make strings

  1. $curl->setopt(CURLOPT_USERPWD,"$user:$pass");
Hopefully that is all it will take to get it working.

The documentation is to vague to tell if you are doing things correclty. It appears that provided you have the proper username and password it should work. I have not used this module so I can't say for sure.

Edit:
It looks like they have an active mailing list you might seek help there if someone here can't help you.
