Speeding up WWW::Mechanize

[ #27360 ]
I just released WWW::Mechanize 1.16, which speeds things up significantly by only parsing links and images from the HTML, and instantiating their corresponding WWW::Mechanize::* objects, if and when they're asked for.

  • Not so much for speeding up WWW::Mechanize, which is really nice btw, but for having made WWW::Mechanize in the first place.

    For some reason I truly abhor coding anything to do with the web. People like you and modules like WWW::Mechanize make it bearable ;-)

  • for both WWW::Mechanize and speeding it up. Using just-enough parse is such a natural optimization, but it's so easy to use a heavyweight pre-built general parser -- so I appreciate the effort and good example.
