Not sure if this is an LWP issue or a general Perl question.
I'm downloading files in a foreach loop that retrieves a list of files
using the following:
$req = HTTP::Request->new(GET => $some_file_url);
$res = $ua->request($req, $some_file_name);
The number of files I retrieve usually number 100+, and I noticed that
while my script runs, the files do not appear to be written right away.
(Perhaps due to some buffering?).
Is there a way to force the output file to be written immediately after the
$ua->request line above?
Any tips/hints would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
