My First Perl Script - The Story

We guys at office are pretty lazy at doing whatever we are asked to do, at least most of us.
So the other day this friend of mine was presented with a baffling problem. He had to download around 50 RFC's from net for his upcoming project. Now I would be more worried about reading those 50 documents but he thought that getting each one of them individually from Internet was tough. This guy wanted a solution wherein he could sleep on his desk and all the documents would come automatically to his folder. So here is a perl script I wrote to help him out. This script downloads RFC's and places them in current folder. This script can be used to download RFC's in batch from command line. Neat?

Dont know how much sleep he got, coz it worked pretty fast :)

Since this is my first perl script, it might be a little messy.

Download the Script from CPAN
