OK, Iım being stupid. My forecaster.pm file doesnıtı have a reference to a
URL at line 71?

Can you reply with the actual strings to look for to comment and uncomment,
and the URL to dosnload the forecaster.pl file you are talking about (is
there more than one??)

Thanks.

# Choose online or offline operation. If you uncomment the .txt, you need the
companion Forecaster.pl
#my $weathercom = 'http://www.w3.weather.com/weather/narrative/';
my $weathercom = catfile($Bin,'Plugins','forecast.txt');

Choose either the URL or the forecast.txt line to suit your needs.

Of course, this is if this is the forecaster.pm downloaded from
http://www.deane-freeman.com/slimserver

The .pl is there as well. If its a different Forecaster.pm from somewhere else,
then I can't really help, unless the debug gives some helpful info.

cheers,
