	It's not clear what you are wanting to do here.  The get returns the
contents of the page as a single string, not an array, so you just get one
blob that contains the entire page.  Usually to get the content out that you
want you looks for stuff using regular expressions.  Perhaps a bit more info
on what you're looking for would help?

Subject: SPUG: parsing a web page

I'm trying to parse a web page but I don't understand the following:
1.-I get the content of the page using this script:

use LWP::Simple;
print "$content[0] \n";

2.-but all the content is $content[0] like if was just one line of content.

Any of you know what is going on?
