Yeah, LWP is used in all of those scripts to fetch the pages from the web pages.But to be fair, calling wget has the benefit of displaying a lot of info on screen (such as the progress bar), and makes things way simpler. Since I only call those scripts on linux machines it is "good enough"

Over all those are some cool script ideas.Calling wget from a perl script? for shame. Just use LWP or Net::FTP.
