Larry "The Al Pacino of Analogy" Gilbert

Hey all,

I'm new to this community. Actually, I'm new to LJ client programming in general, so I apologize if this is a rookie question. :-)

I'm trying to write some Perl code that acts as a minimal client for the purposes of downloading and analyzing "friends" connections between users. It is using XMLRPC::Lite to make XML-RPC calls.

My question: Is it possible to use LJ.XMLRPC.getfriends to retrieve the friends list of any LJ user? Or is it only intended for retrieving the friends of the currently-logged-in user? I ask because I appear to be getting "Invalid password" errors if I try to get my own friends list by calling LJ.XMLRPC.getfriends first thing. (And I'm afraid of hammering the server too much by thrashing around and experimenting.) :-)
