  • FYI, Javascript support for WWW::Mechanize has recently begun to emerge. You'd have to do some Googling and installation of experimental versions to use it; IIRC it uses a plugins mechanism for WWW::Mechanize which exists only in an experimental version. I believe it can use a Perl-based Javascript engine or Perl bindings for Mozilla's Javascript engine.

    Not sure if this is relevant to you or not, but maybe someone else will be glad to know. :)

  • I'm not sure why this problem has not already been solved with the modules Win32::IE::Mechanize [] (on Windows, uses the core engine of MS Internet Explorer) and its descendant Mozilla::Mechanize [] (uses the gecko core). I believe that both support execution of embedded Javascript I know for sure that Win32::IE::Mechanize does.
    • Check out who the author of Moz::Mech is, and who the author of the post up above is...I'm sure he knows what the issues are. I'm guessing that M::M actually opens a browser window, and that he wants to not have to do that.
      • Ah, right. I only have experience with Win32::IE::Mechanize which does not open any windows, but not with Mozilla::Mechanize. Odd that nobody I've ever talked to about this module ever mentioned that fact.
