How to get PERL script to retrieve current image instead of cached one?

This may be easy, but I'm not a coder, so I don't know. I. Background: I'm using a simple PERL app to grab a specfic image off the web every day. It uses the LWP::Simple module and stores it to my computer using the "getstore" command. The image changes every day, but the URL to the image is always the same. I'm running the PERL app as a "scheduled task" on Windows. II. The problem: When the app runs, it gets cached images, not the latest version. III. My failed solution: I tried to append some random GET variables so that the URL would always be different, and thus not request a known image in cache. For example, if the image is [url removed, login to view], I would request the following: [url removed, login to view] However, the image is NOT a static image like a gif or jpg, but is being created on the fly from a database, probably using PHP. The PHP script fails if there are any GET variables attached. IV. Preferred Solution What I would like is some information/advice/suggestions/code on how to include something in my local PERL script that removes any cached image or that eliminates this problem in some other way. However, I don't want to have to do it manually. It needs to be automated from within this script, or it needs to be a different script that I can set up to run as a scheduled task. Thanks for your help and/or ideas.
