I have a program where I want to test if numerous html product pages 
exist at various customer websites. I'm trying to figure out what is 
the lightest and fastest way to do this. Essentially, I just want to 
find out if, for any given url, I get a 404 or 200 response. Don't 
want to download the whole page, but I don't know if that is possible.
Tried LWP::Simple and HTTP::Request with various results.
Any recommendations?
