Hello Everybody,

 I've got a small problem with urlretrieve.
Even passing a bad url to urlretrieve doesn't raise an exception. Or does
it?

If Yes, What exception is it ? And how do I use it in my program ? I've
searched a lot but haven't found anything helping.

Example:
try:
  
urllib.urlretrieve("http://security.debian.org/pool/updates/main/p/perl/libparl5.6_5.6.1-8.9_i386.deb")
except IOError, X:
DoSomething(X)
except OSError, X:
DoSomething(X)

urllib.urlretrieve doesn't raise an exception even though there is no
package named libparl5.6

Please Help!
