Cool script :) Too bad it won't work on windows :(
It is reading the raw response from the HTTP socket into a string an extracting the <xhtml><tt> tag (same as I did) -
the spaces are being removed at the source, AFAICT. (Although I don't know the Perl HTML package at all - perhaps your
idea would work. I'd try it, but it won't work on any system I have).
